Well, to me it ends up being the Severity of the headache as into what I take for it. If it is just a minor one, I take Aleve for the pain of it. But when it turns into being something like a Migraine, I take a 1/2 of Hydocodone. I also take something natural that has helped with my Migraines, my Arthritis and such. It is nice to have a Remedy out there to help. They also say Gatorade is Good for helping relieving headaches as well.

I will relax myself, keep my mind blank (not thinking of anything). Drink some water and listening to soft music. I will usually lie down on the bed. If the condition is really unabearable, i will try 2 Panado Pills or consult the doctor.

Whenevr i get a headache, i do any one of the following depending on the severeness of the headache. The options available are:- 1. Tie your head tightly and sit or lie down with closed eyes for sometime. 2. Dont do anything, instead just go off to sleep. 3. Go see a doctor ( which is the last thing i do) 4. Self Medicate. There are pills available in the market. The most commonly used method by me is going off to sleep. it actually helps.
