headaches after delivery of baby!!

Jus a quick question - Has anyone ever heard of increased migraine-like headaches after the delivery of a baby? Baby is almost 2 weeks old and has had headache for most..! Advil dosen't help nor does tylenol.  Any advice on this would be helpful.....Mother is 19, normal delivery...Baby 7 lbs 11ounces and born 1 week before due date.

Did she have an epidural as this can sometimes cause headache after birth for quite a while I think. Good Luck

I had major headaches for quite a few weeks...happy to say they are all gone now and baby is 8 weeks. I haven't had them in quite some time so I'm thinking my headaches lasted for ~3-4 weeks. I even posted about it, too, because they were so bad. I had some pain meds left over from the hospital (had c-section) and I took one of htose when tylenol wouldn't work. My guess (uneducated guess) is that the headaches are hormone related but not sure.
