Any tips on curing a headache faster than usual? (Details)

You have a headache and it’s getting in the way of things you have planned for the day. Things you have to get done. How do you deal?

I was taught biofeedback in college and it’s always worked for me. I concentrate on relaxing and trying to make the backs of my hands feel warmer. Imagine your hands are in warm sunlight and relax your neck and back. I’m not sure which does it but I can make an approaching headache go away. It takes some practice and concentration but it really works if I focus on it.

@Adirondackwannabe Thanks, that sounds good. I’ll try it.

Peppermint oil on my forehead and temples. It works way faster than motrin. You just have to be careful not to get it to close to your eyes. That stings.

3 apsirin & a double or triple shot of espresso.

I take Excedrin for Migraines when I have a headache. It’s a mega dose of asprin and caffeine, i.e. the medical version of @SpatzieLover‘s remedy.

Take an Aleve and a Coke or a cup of black tea.
