Hi everyone, I am sure you all experience that headache that just doesn't want to go away. It's not a migraine, but it sticks! What do you usually do or take to get rid of it?
I once knew a very wise woman who, when told about headaches always said, firstly, see your dentist, and secondly, change your pillow. Many times over the years her views have borne fruit, and I will never forget her words. Vera
If the headache or migraine lasts more than a week my neurologist gives me a dose pack of steroids and it's gone.
Ok this is off the wall. But I get in a warm lavender bath with only candles for light and I drink zero sprite with a shot of red wine in it low music playing in the background about 30 minutes and I end up feeling very good afterwards.
I drink water and take Paracetamol with Caffeine (no Codeine). My son brings them from the UK.
If that doesn't work a Stilpane or a Cataflam provided I haven't had any other anti-inflammatory that day!
Whew! I sound like a pharmacy! I've suffered from headaches since I was young - migraines and normal. My mum used to give me Disprin which made me feel wven worse! Castor oil and Disprin were her cure for all ailments - it was better to say nothing and suffer!!!
