When you have a headache, do you "slow down" until it goes away or do you "play through the pain"?

I get those cluster headaches where one of my eyes hurts and my neck hurts. So annoying, they turn into migraines sometimes, gah.

  • If it is a migraine, I don't do hardly anything. "normal" headaches, just go through the day, and do things as usual.

  • If I can tell that has potential to be a migraine, I take something and stop right then and there. It if is just a headache, I push through. I get really really bad headaches a lot so I am pretty much use to having headaches.

  • The headaches I get stop me in my tracks. I have to be in the dark, laying down. I usually take something to knock me out so I can relax.

  • normal headache i just drink peppermint tea and it seems to go away almost "instantly" but if its a migriane i usually have to take a bc powder and lie down orsink into a hot tub until it goes away with a hot wash cloth on my forehead most of the day:) lol

  • I get migraines also and when I get one I'm out for the count. I have to go get a Nubian shot then go to bed, but the average headache I take 2 excedrin and work through it and hope it doesn't turn into a migraine.

  • I have had one migraine in my life, and yeah I went to bed right after dinner. (I was only 15) As for regular headaches, nope, I don't slow down. Most of the time I ignore them and don't even remember to pop some Tylenol! LOL

  • I drug up and usually shut down. I can't function with any sort of headache.

  • Depends on how bad the headache is. If I catch it right away, I take 4 Advil with caffiene and it knocks the headache right out. If I don't catch it right away, I can't function and am usually on my couch or in bed.
