Pregnant migraines and sickness

Patient : My girlfriend is experiencing sickness at 20 weeks. We have just had our 20 week scan and the midwife said all is fine, and my girlfriends morning sickness stopped months ago. This morning she woke up with a migraine (she used to have these before pregnancy but can't take those kind of strong painkillers now), she's also experiencing blurred vision 'like someone has shone a bright light in her eyes' dizziness, vomiting and tiredness. I've kept her hydrated with water and sugary drinks and closed the curtains while I told her to rest. Any advice?
