What do you guys do when you have head ache? I will drink a cup of coffee and apply vicks vaporub and some days I apply Navratna oil in my scalp and sleep for an hour or two. This helps me a lot.

I have never heard of Navratna oil. Where do you find it? When I have a headache what I do depends on what type of headache it is. If it is a caffeine withdrawal headache I drink a can of caffeinated soda. If it is a sinus headache I take a sinus pill first then Motrin later if needed. For tension headaches I take some Motrin and try to take a nap.

The only thing that helps me when I have headache is Panadol! I tried to drink a lot of water before, but it does not help. I tried to drink 100plus and other soft drinks, it does not help. I tried to get out and take fresh air, it does not work. But 30 minutes taking a tablet of panadol, the headache will subside.

I have read that there are more than one lac reasons for head ache..Most of them are due to stress and tension.sometimes hunger too triggers of a head ache...I try to figure our the causes otherwise I come out in the open for a whiff of fresh air which sometimes does good.Iaply some balm and try to sleep it off( which is not alsways the case)

During the time of head ache applying Vicks or Amrutanjan is not bad. But, your should not consume any alopatheic medicines such as Pracetamol, Crocin etc. And during your head ache period, if you can sleep it is very good and while you wake you head ache might have ran away. But fall in sleep with head ache is not so easy.

I get migraines usually once or twice a month, that last for 3 days at a time. They are related to my cycle, and there isnt much I can do. Lucky for me I have a very high tolerance for pain. When they are absolutely unbearable I take excedrin migraine, sometimes too much, before I can get any relief. The only other thing that helps is darkness, and no noise at all. Most of the time the excedrin migraine will make them at least bearable, but not take them away.

It kind of depends on how bad the headache is. Usually I will take some type of pain reliever, go sleep for about an hour and lay a cold washcloth on my forehead. Sometimes a hot bath will help. If I have a migraine I try to stay away from the light, put a cold washcloth on my forehead and eyes, and try to sleep. I also make sure that I have ate good, because I have noticed at least with me the two main causes I get a headache or a migraine is if I haven't ate right or if I didn't get enough sleep.
