  • Actually, the past two horrible headaches I've had have been instantly cured (well, within 15 to 30 minutes) with some hardcore caffiene (think strong coffee or Mountain Dew).

    Sometimes I get a headache when I eat too much sugar. A good meal with some protein usually helps.

    Also, if I have a headache that's not absolutely blistering (bends over and whispers) an orgasm can do wonders.

    If all else fails, a muscle relaxer with the pain medicine should knock it out.

  • Mine always start with light disturbances about 20 minutes before any pain hits, so as soon as the lights start going off, I take 3 Advil and down a bunch of super strong coffee or espresso, and that usually prevents it from being more than a normal headache would be. If it doesn't, the absolute best stuff I've ever found is something called Formula 303. It kills just about any pain I've had from sore muscles and joints to tension headaches. http://www.amazon.com/Formula-Maximum-Strength-Natural-Relaxant-250/dp/B0016KX9SI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=sporting-goods&qid=1258602518&sr=8-1
