    I took the medicine I got from the doctors, but it's not working and I'm going nuts. I'm under stress....

    Any tips?

      take something long and skinny like a belt or a scarf and wrap it tightly around your head and tie it. i saw it on the doctors LOL they said because it decreases the blood flow to your head so it stops the throbbing. i've tried it and it worked!

      Stay off the HubPages forums...they are giving me a headache tonight smile

      I find Advil gel caps are great. As is Aleve.

    Warm washcloth on your forehead. Pressure in a circle on your temples. What medicine did you take?

      My doctor gave me Naproxen SOD... she said because I'm a teenager she doesn't want to give me anything that is addictive.

    Relaxation in a dark room.  Go deep into a meditation, almost to the point of sleeping.  As you relax, the headache will subside.  A good neck/back/head/facial massage will also work.

    Hot bath with eucalyptus oil, will open your sinuses, relax you - so tension is lessened and the headache pressure will subside.

    Have some chamomile tea, too.  Feel better

    drink water...a fair bit, you may be a little dehydrated.

    I like having something cold-ice cold wash cloth or that, blue gel hot/cold thing, i rub on my temples...hope it helped or cocodamol, a tablet-works a treat

    I suffer from migraines and I really do find relief by using Advil.

    I hope you are feeling better.

    Actually I do have a trick for some relief. I suffer from migraines and my doctor had me go underwater in the bathtub and the pressure change (I held my nose too) actually offered relief.  Enough that I could get some sleep.

    Get this,I am astonished that anyone could do this with a bad headache but tip 2 was to masturbate.  He suggested this changes the amount of blood flow away from your head and therefore releases pressure also.

    Who could masturbate with a migraine, I can barely move my arm, but you just never know

    Hope these help lol

    Steaming just as u would during a facial works for me.To prevent it's onset, drinking lot of water everyday and avoiding hot food helps.
