I dun do anything for my headache at alll.. I will simply ignore it, and carry on with whatever i'm doing.. I never believe in taking medicine for it, and if possible, i might just sleep it off.. haha =D The only times i will have headaches will be the time i'm about to have fever or flu.. hehe ^_^ ANd so, headache is more like a warning to me ^_^

A lot of times when I have a headache, I'll just deal with it. But it all depends on how bad it is. Sometimes I'll lay in bed with all my lets off and try to sleep. i try to avoid taking any pills to make it feel better, unless it's still there after hours, and it's just to annoying to deal with.

most of the time when i have a headache i would go to sleep. if it's really bad then i'll take some aspirin and then sleep. usually by the time i get up, the headache's gone. oh i hate it when i have headaches!

Hi vinothkumar08.. I rest my eyes for sometime because my headache normally caused by abusing my eyes like reading with less light and lying down or sitting in front of my pc for too long even my eyes are tired already. You better take a rest and get away from your pc or laptop for a couple of hours. Not necessarily you have to sleep but to close your eyes and just take rest. If that doesnt help then you take pain killers, in the Philippines I usually take mefenaic acid but im not so sure if what medicine is for pain reliever in your place. Ask the pharmacist i guess for assistance. I do hope you will feel better soon.

hello. i have sinusitis but till now i haven't consulted a doctor for medicines. i often have headache. i have it almost everyday. it makes me feel tired and i lose concentration. i started off by taking a painkiller called dart around 2 years back. now also i use the same thing. i'm kind of addicted to it. i cannot go on without it. i carry it wherever i go . i know its bad to take a medicine like this. hope i'll be able to get out of this as soon as possible.

i get headaches/migraines daily and if i catch them early i take excedrine but sometimes sleep is the only thing that will help me.. i cant take those migraine medications such as imitrex etc because of the side affects..

Headache! - Does your head feeel as if it is going to explode?
Hi there, Well, I guess it depends on the type of headache. I get migraine headaches as well as just routine, regular headaches. Generally I can tough out the regular headaches without taking anything. But, a mirgraine is a different story, altogether. I'm not sure if you're a migraine sufferer but if you are you know what I'm talking about, they are a totally different breed of headache. When I feel one of those coming on, light and sound and motion all affect me. In that case I try to nip it in the bud as quick as possible. If I jump on it, my hope is that it will not get, to an unmanageable point. So, I lock myself into a completely dark and silent room, and hunker down for the duration! If I'm lucky I will end up falling asleep and when I wake up it will be gone. Man! Headaches, and in particular migraines have to be one of the worst things out there we have to endure.

vin if it's a migraine headache all you can do is go to bed. Go to sleep that is all that will help this type. If it's one because I've had no sleep likewise I need to lay down. If it's because I have not ate anything, then I will eat. If it's a sinus headache I will take something for my sinuses that will help my headache.

Drink hot water and go to sleep.But the most important thing you should do is find out the source of the headache.I wish you will be better soon. Happy mylotting!~

i took aspirin tablets or paracetamol to get rid of my headache. or maybe your headache is due to staying too long in front of the computer. sometimes our eyes gets tired and that's why we suffered from headache. or you can try to relax to ease the pain.
