5th week headache

My first pregnancy was textbook.  In my 2nd pregnancy I developed excruciating headaches around the 5th week.  In my 12th week I went for a sonagram (Army will not do it earlier) & they found no heartbeat - later discovered the gestational sac had not developed beyond 6 weeks.  My hormone levels continued to climb & my pregnancy looked like I was 3 months.  Eventually had to have a D&C.  I am pregnant again.  I am 5 weeks 3 days pregnant & today the headaches have started.  I know the heartbeat starts at this time.  The doctor (we have one OB/GYN) on base, just says take Tylenol (one tried to give me Vicodin) & are very unconcerned.  Doctors off base are not an option.

Tylenol is good. Tylenol 3's are ok if you can get a doctor to prescribe them, but army doctors are mostly dumb as hell. Are you drinking caffeine? I know some doctors will recommend a little caffeine to help with the headaches and it works sometimes.
