I tend to drink again, as the only time I tend to get headaches are when I'm hungover:)

I will massage my neck upward...It will help the blood flow into our brain. The ache is somehow coz by the blood flow pressure on our nerve, when the blood flow to our brain is not so smooth & blocked by the valve.

A headache (medically known as cephalalgia, sometimes spelled as cephalgia) is a condition of pain in the head; sometimes neck or upper back pain may also be interpreted as a headache. It ranks amongst the most common local pain complaints. Headaches have a wide variety of causes, ranging from eye strain, sinusitis and tension to life-threatening conditions such as encephalitis, meningitis, cerebral aneurysms and brain tumors (although up to 99% of headaches have a benign cause and do not warrant further treatment other than a painkiller). When the headache occurs in conjunction with a head injury the cause is usually quite evident; however, many causes are more unclear. The most common type of headache is a tension headache. Some experience headaches when dehydrated, or suffering from caffeine withdrawal symptoms. Treatment of uncomplicated headache is usually symptomatic with over-the-counter painkillers such as aspirin, paracetamol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen, although some specific forms of headaches (e.g. migraine) may demand other, more suitable treatment.

I usually take some panadol, and get into bed turning the lights off and sleep. Hoping that my headache will go away!
