What is the best remedy when you are suffering a headache, dizziness, and nausea all at the same time????
I kid you not, I am suffering today! I have a headache and the pain is just specifically above my left eye. I had a hard time even getting out of bed, but since I was feeling nauseous, I told myself to get up and eat. I'm not quite sure why I feel so dizzy. But, I also woke up feeling like I was on fire, but my temp was only 98.53 or something like that.
This is the worst I have felt so far. I had to take some Tylenol this morning. I almost threw those right back up. I have a feeling this is going to be a really long day.
ditto on the fluids. The headache and dizziness sound like dehydration to me. It's hard to stay hydrated when you're nauseated, I know. Avoid caffeinated drinks. Caffeine makes your kidneys work faster, so they don't absorb as much liquid, so it actually dehydrates you. For me, it's easier to drink flavored waters (regular water upsets my stomach, but the moment it has something in it I'm okay), that aren't too cold. Also, drink slowly, sips instead of gulps.
Good luck! This is my biggest battle when pregnant! (speaking of, I should go find something to drink...)
The dehydration thing surprises me. All I drink is water. Water all day, every day. I may have been dehydrated from last night. I leave water on my nightstand, but I rarely ever drink it because then I have to get up numerous times to pee in the middle of the night. I'm going to have DH do most of the laundry for me today.
I honestly feel hungover. That's sort of what it feels like.

Most hangover symptoms are because alcohol severely dehydrates you. It's the same thing, really. But if you're drinking a lot of water already, I don't know what else you can try. Are you thirsty at all? If you are still thirsty, then you might want to step it up (hard to do sometimes I know). If not...well...I don't know what else to tell you. Try getting a humidifier and see if that helps...
I'm thirsty sometimes. It only hits me in mid-afternoon, so I tend to drink more water then. I'm starting to feel a bit better. The nausea went away for now. The headache and dizziness is still here. I'd love to take a nap, but I'm not really the napping type. I'll just have to rest it off I'm guessing.
Oh gosh, I have no idea. If the dizziness does not go away after a little bit, I would honestly call my doc because that just doesn't sound like a normal pregnancy symptom, ya know? I hope you feel better real soon Jessica!
