    How To Treat A Headache (My Way)

    Everyone gets headaches from time to time. So this article will show you how I cure my headaches. So I hope this article will help.

    Headaches are not fun and make everyone feel awful. So these are cures I use to cure my headaches. Most of the things you need you probably already have in your house. So I hope this article will be helpful to you.


    When you feel the start of a headache, take an aspirin or another type of pain killer to dull some of the pain.

    If you're at home, grab a washcloth and soak it in very cold water and place the wet cloth on your forehead. This will help numb the pain. Or you can use a heating pad and put it on the back of your neck to relax the muscles.


    If you have Tiger Balm, Badger Balm, or any other type of balm, rub some on your forehead and temples along with the back of the neck. Be careful not to get any around or in your eyes, This will be VERY painful.

    Find a place were you can lay down and relax. Dim the lights or turn them off so that the pain will be less intense. Lie down and close your eyes. You might be able to sleep the headache away.

    Drink water or Gatorade or other drink to moisturize your body. Headaches are sometimes a sign of dehydration. Try to eat something light like a small sandwich. Hunger can also cause headaches.

    If you get a sudden headache that gets worse as you lay down, get to a hospital as fast as you can. This could be an aneurysm, a swollen blood vessel in your head which can be deadly if it bursts. If having numbness, trouble seeing, trouble remembering, this is a sign of a stroke. If you have any of these symptoms get to a hospital or call 911.
