  • I don't have headaches much but usually it's because of dehydration so usually drinking some water takes care of it. I don't know how those poor Moms with bad headaches deal with the pain... Moms aren't allowed to be sick.

  • I am prone to headaches and as soon as I feel one start to come on I take excedrin and have a cup of coffee. If I am able to I will try soaking in a hot bathtub, or try to take a nap in a cold dark room.

  • Depends on the headache. For sinus headaches I usually take a hot steamy shower. For stress headaches I will take Advil or Motrin.

  • I take Excedrin Migraine. I don't bother with anything weaker. I drink lots of water. I close my eyes and try to relax. If I can, I go lay down, but that almost never happens. I get a lot of headaches at work.
