No.

Your dull headache can be due to;

1) Tension headache

2) Migraine.

3) Hormonal issues, associated with pregnancy.

Tension headaches are the most common type of primary headache. So probably this would be the first to be considered in the differential diagnosis of your headache also. A tension headache is a headache caused by tense muscles in the face, neck, or scalp. These headaches give a feeling of tightness around the head. The neck muscles can also become sore and tight. Tension headaches can be caused by staying in one position for a long time, such as reading, playing video games or using a computer.

Sinusitis too can cause your symptoms. So if you have running or blocked nose, or known allergies, that may also be the consideration.

With your pregnancy, it would not be advised to take medicines.

Mild massage, good sleep, relaxation techniques, plenty of fluids would help you.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
