what do you do when you wake up with a headache?

i just take it easy, massage my neck, take some tylenol with a caffeineated drink, and keep hydrated, and eat a banana or two if i have any.

  • Depends on what time I wake up with it-- if it is still early morning then I take excedrin and go back to bed. If it is time to get up and I have a headache then I take the excedrin and have a cup of coffee

  • Take to Excedrin Tension Headaches and drink a large Mt. Dew. Then I try to lay down and sleep it away, but if my husband is working I just have to deal.

  • I rotate my neck to try and unstiffen it. If it doesnt go away after an hour or so Ill take some excedrin.

  • I use an ice pack to help numb the pain. Plus maybe something sweet to eat might help. For me it is my morning coke.
