What Do You Do When You Have A Headache?

Because I have a really bad one right now. I think it's because of school.

Normally when I have a headache I wouldn't do anything about it. It normally goes away after I wake up the next day but this time it's not.

So... What would you do if you had a really bad headache?

If you lay down facedown in bed and place your hand on the back of your neck while allowing your forearm to rest on the back of your head, it makes the pain go away while you’re in that position, and it requires less effort than simply squeezing your head with your hands.

I am prone to headaches. Not quite classed as migraines, but bad enough. I try to stay away from pain meds (Had to deal with them when I was hospitalized a couple years ago. Refuse to use them now!)  I will sometimes just go to bed for a few hours. That helps.

This is a little delicate, but I won't give details. When 'something' happens, the brain releases chemicals that actually end headaches. Sometimes my husband will, 'nap' with me. he's good at making that 'something' happen. Sometimes it really does work, so stop thinking nasty things!

I usually take a pill (beest careful though, minding thy allergies, etcetera) and fall asleep as soon as I can (getting home from work and so on). Mine experience telleth me that "sleeping the headache out" worketh nicely. Thou needst a dark, nicely ventilated room (must be relatively cool) and silence.

There's a lot to be said for this idea too. I imagine the increased heart-rate and circulation would also do wonders. After all, isn't aspirin supposed to improve circulation? And if you run out of aspirin, well...

Tension headaches are an occasional thing for me. I seem to get them every weekend when I oversleep. Bit of a brain twist to think that sleeping can actually cause a headache. Sometimes they get bad enough to feel nauseous and dry heave. I take two Ibuprofen every 3-4 hours until it stops. That's probably the most used medicine in the house.
