When you get a headache, do you "ride it out" or take medicine?

I don't get headaches too terribly often, so it really annoys me when they pop up. I usually take some tylenol and it goes away.

  • I can't let it ride away because if I do, they get worse and last all day and all night. If I take something, it usually goes away.

  • Gahhh don't you hate those headaches that get right behind your eye and won't go away no matter what? I think they're called cluster headaches or whatever. Once in a blue moon I'll have one turn into that, and no amount of tylenol will make it go away.

  • I can't ride them out. I take 3 ibuprofen at a time, lay down and pray it goes away. Sometimes I have them for 2 or 3 days straight.

  • I have to nip migraines in the bud, or I will be in agony for days. If it's not a migraine, then I can usually ride it out.
