What do you that helps. Right now I have tried everything. I rotate between advil and Aleve. Some I will use excedrin migraine. Ive been also icing my neck and using heating pads All this stuff helps but temporarily and not great. What is your relationship like with headaches?

i get migraines and have Imatrex for them, but if they dont work i use 3 T  cold water with 1 T vinegar and drink it down like a shot. It has always worked for me.

I wish I could help.  I've had tension headaches that last for weeks before but I've had a headache every day for 3 years.  Nothing helps :(  I'm going to a neurologist next week but I don't have any expectations that he can help.  Good luck on yours.

Do youi the triggers?  Do you know if it is a sinus, stress or migraine headache?  All of those would be treated differently.   Excedrin Migraine and Tylenol (not at the same time) work well for me.  If the headache is severe, I usually have to sleep them off.

if you have tried alot of things, have you tried a chiropractor?  It worked for my DD when she was suffering migraines and several friends swear by chiropractic.
