I take a nice, long nap. I tend to get sinus headaches more often than not, and I've found out that sinus medication really doesn't work for my headaches so I just flop over and go to sleep when I get a really nasty one.

One thing I found out is that if you have a mild headache and don't/can't take medication (example, you're at school) you can actually "make it go away" by working on something and not thinking about anything else. I don't know why that works, but because you're not focusing on anything else, it appears to go away.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

Hot showers always soothe a headache. Um, something cold against your head also soothes them. Naps are always good, and pain reliever, of course. ^_^

Advil works for me. Or sometimes just laying down and relaxing in a quiet room works well for people. But like some other people said, taking naps works, as well.

Usually I take a nap, but if I can't I take ibuprofen and have some tea. The best thing I've found is to drink a milkshake slowly(I suggest Wendy's or McDonald's, especially chocolate).

Ahh I just take a long hot bath.

Unfortunately sometimes it give me a runny nose.

Honestly the best thing you can do for a headache is lie down and do something quiet (i.e. reading, sleeping, etc). When I was a pre-teen I would get migraines every time I moved around quick, so coaches and beds were my heroes!

Urgh, I used to get the most terrible migraines ever. I'd be throwing up if I moved, and my head would feel as tho someone was stabbing it in one side. -.- I'd have horrible visual disturbance and it would last three days. Now tho, my migraines tend to last 8 or 9 hours at the most, and taking codine seems to help the symptoms; I don't throw up as much now so it's worth taking pills.

For normal headaches, if possible I lie down in a dark room; if not, like if I'm at work, I take two ibuprofens and drink lots of water.

I always thought that something cold against your head made headaches worse? Well, it does for me. I usually distract myself by listening to music or eating. I usually always have a reason for getting one. Like if I go outside when it's hot and I come into a cold room. That gives me the worst headache ever..
