    Do you usually pop a pill each time pain such as headache, toothache etc come on?

    Or do you try to heal naturally?

    I try my best to avoid medicines unless the pain reaches an unbearable level. I do believe that you become addicted to medicines just like you become addicted to drugs.

    i almost never take pills for pain. to me it's stupid. people should try to let their bodies fix themselves, not use drugs for it.

    If it's just a slight headache, I usually try drinking a tall glass of water first. Sometimes, that's all it takes.

    I pop a pill for headaches if I am at work or have to socialize outside of my home. My headaches don't usually subside unless I go to sleep and even then they may not go away.  However, sometimes my husband will massage my neck and back and that will work too. I only get toothaches if a tooth has to be pulled out, yikes! Not sure what natural remedies are out there for headaches but wish I knew...

    Over the counter stuff just don't work.  The alternative leaves you hooked.  I just tough it out, and the older I get, having done hard labor all my life, the harder it gets.

    I don't pop pills so often to manage any type of pain.  I try with natural remedies such as drinking a hot cup of tea, applying some balm, massaging the area, bathe in hot water, reiki, exercises etc. If it is absolutely necessary then I will take one tablet and take rest, since I am now not working outside.
