    I suffer from migranes and the only thing that helps is taking excedrine migrane staying in a dark room with ice on my eyes and forehead. I had a real severe one and only getting 2 shots at urgent care helped. I wish I had asked what the shot was for it instandly took the pain away.

    What I do when I have an intense headache varies, depending on which type of headache it is. For migraines, I take a very warm bath or shower because it pulls some of the extra blood from my head and lets the pain subside for a short period of time. At that point, then I usually go to bed in a dark room and try to sleep.

    1. You can do accupressure on your palms for the point corresponding to the head region.  That works like an instant injection.
    2.Meridian therapy as an alternative cure

    I'm lucky not to have severe headaches yet...But if I'd have headaches, my instant choice would be an aspirin and sugar, or if not, I'll have a can of cold Coke.

    I would try to calm down my mind by just rinse my face with cold water. Some times I close my eyes and try to sleep.

    I dont suffer from migraines but my sister does, so I know how painful they can be. Dr Teitalbaum, a certified internist , and holistic doctor recommends Butterbur for migraines. Finding the triggers may also be an option. MSG, is a highly allergenic substance, not just hives, or swelling of the throat, it has been linked to migraines. As well as hormonal imbalance, food, and food additives, and chemicals. Keeping a headache diary may be very helpful in finding the triggers. The when, where, and what may reveal the true cause. His video can be found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLnbKd5V00w
    As he discussed B2, Magnesium, and butterbur. 1 gram=1000mg. of magnesium. A liquid form placed under the tongue, is directly into the blood stream, and can be obtained here Mega-Mag (replaces upc 786601005018) - 4 oz - Liquid http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000I1 … es0ccf4-20

      Magnesium is probably the number one element, that the american diet is lacking. From muscles, headache, asthma, adhd, concentration, anxiety, among a million other things, is a helpful supplement in treatment, and prevention of numerous ailments

    Take an Aleve, lay a cold damp cloth on my head, and lay down!  Unless it is due to allergies......then I take an Aleve D Sinus and Headache, then lay down!

    I know of a few remedies: one is drinking a strong cup of coffee, Alternative medicines are Feverfew and Scullcap which are excellent for any kind of headache or bad stress, and lastly a cold splash of water to the face and a cold cloth to the back of the neck and try to relax in a peaceful setting.
