Question Headache...Tips to knock it out? - November 11th 2011, 11:26 PM

So to be clear before I start, I'm not asking for professional advice as I know that we, here on TH, aren't professionals.

I have had a headache for 3 days now. A bad one too. Its a sharp pain on the (my) left side of my head towards the front. I'm also feeling a bit sensitive to light, and high pitched sounds. I'm thinking it's just a tension headache cause I've been pushing myself lately and have been fairly stressed. Anyways, has anyone experienced this? Any tips on how to knock it out? Thanks!

Painkillers, relaxing bath, plenty of fluids and spending the day in a dark room sleeping. That's my way of getting rid of stress headaches! x

actually, are you getting blinking lights because senstive to light and the pain yu have sounds like a migrane.

All you can do is ake some pain meds, have a big drink, maybe a bath to loosen the muscles and then SLEEP in a very dark room.

If you vomit pain meds try soluble in some water, this helps me as end up vomiting anything solid when I get migranes.

Sounds like a normal headache to me. Try taking ibeprophone and just lying in your room with the lights off and a cold washcloth on your head. It helps me when I'm stressed and have a bad headache hope you feel better!

What always helps with my headaches is a little miracle called Excedrin. There are many types of this particular pain med, engaging the different types of headaches there are. Since I suffer from chronic migraines, I use Excedrin Migraine. But, as said, they have other forms of the pill, like: Excedrin (dealing with the basic headache), Excedrin Tension (for the ugly tension headaches). They do offer generic brands of Excedrin as well, but they have always worked for me in under 30 minutes. They are also fairly inexpensive!

Also, if I don't happen to have excedrin with me at the time of a headache, I lie down and keep my head in one spot. Sometimes, moving the neck can cause the pain to increase in your head, especially if you deal with migraines like myself. I also put a warm-hot washcloth on my forehead, and over my eyes. The heat from the cloth helps release the tension. (Also, a warm water bottle could replace the washcloth as well)
