    Oh, bless you. I too suffer from migraines and the only thing to do is to take migraleave (sp?) so I'm dreading getting one now I'm pg.

    I had to go to the local chemist last night for a couple of bits, and I went school with the pharmacist so we had about a 20 minute natter about me being pregnant. I took the opportunity to ask her what I could do if/when I get a migraine. She told me maximum 8 paracetamol in 24 hours, but also said that the stick roll-on FourHead is really good. Because it is mainly menthol in the ingredients, it is safe for use during pregnancy. She also recommended those cool'n'sooth patches, or a wet cool flannel.

    And laying down in a very dark room with sunglasses on and your head under a thick quilt always helps me!!!

    I hope you feel better soon hun.

    Hi Tankett,

    Thank you for your replie........have already had 3 parcetamol today but they don't seem to be shifting my migrane. Going to get my husband to stop off on the way home to get me some four-head.....thanks again for your advice, off to lay down again now.

    Hey!

    I too suffer from migranes - i would recommend the cool patches. I tried the 4head stuff but I was allergic to it - I would recomend trying it on a small area first as I had a nice red line on my head!!
