Symptom Checker

Step 4: Read and complete the decision guide to learn more about your symptoms.

Headache in Pregnancy

Because your headache is getting worse, you should call for medical advice now. It's unlikely that you have anything serious causing the headache. With your pregnancy, a headache that is not going away might indicate a rising blood pressure and perhaps preeclampsia.

Be sure to tell the doctor or advice nurse about any other symptoms you may be having such as ankle swelling or sudden weight gain.
