For me dealing with headaches does not always mean take a pill and water and go for it! I tried natural ways to prevent headache. Maybe you want to try as well (,"): -Find the pulse on your head and press it not too hard and hold it while taking deep breath through your nose and exaling it through your mouth. Repeat few times and you'll see the headache is gone. -Another trick that I use in dealing headache is, with your index finger and thumbnail, pinching the fleshy part of your left hand where your index finger and thumb come together. -Pressing the back of our neck with the three fingertips on each side may also help if its a tension headache. -Even drinking a cup of coffee or soda helps in dealing headache because as you noticed counter headache medicine contains an "added ingredient" which is a 50mg of caffeine.

I take tylenol or mefenamic acid. I coudn't stand my headache coz it always makes me feel dizzy and I throw up. I got an eye problem and migraine at the same time. I couldn't work when my head aches so I take leave of absence during working days to sleep after taking the medicine.

Headaches are either caused by stress and tension in the neck muscles, a medical condition or too much too drink the night before. Mine usually come about from the effects of a neck injury in an accident several years ago. If I just make sure that my shoulders and neck are relaxed, it usually goes, but sometimes it has to be painkillers especially if I have to work. :-)

All headaches are considered primary headaches or secondary headaches. Primary headaches are not associated with other diseases. Examples of primary headaches are migraine headaches, tension headaches, and cluster headaches. Secondary headaches are caused by other diseases. The associated disease may be minor or major.If it occurs frequently visit a doctor and get treatment. To prevent head ache one can do yoga and meditation.

i think it depends on what contributes to the headache, apparently, taking a shower will be the best way to get rid of the headache from a hangover, taking some pills will probably be suitable to get rid of headache from a cold, while certainly not the wise choice to get rid of a headache from pressure

when i got headache, i really got it bad. and i hate it everytime those migraine spells came to me. the best solution that i do with it is to sleep it out. in a way, it eases the pain and usually, at the time that you wake up, its gone. well,medicines can help. like alaxan. or sometimes, you just have to eat and it would gradually go away LOL.

To deal with it, I drink water and take one or two capsules to kill the headache. If possible, I would like to sleep to make me get well earlier. The moment I feel the coming of headahce, the earlier I take the medicine, the faster my headache says byebye to me.
