Headaches are one of the most
common forms of chronic pain. Anyone who's suffered the splitting pain of a
headache — especially a migraine — knows how difficult it can be to drive,
work, and even carry on a conversation while your head is pounding.
But when a headache strikes, you
can do more than just crawl into bed and wait for it to go away. There are
effective headache treatments available and ways to find quick relief.
Fortunately, many headaches can be
eased without medication, which will help minimize your need for pain relievers

you put into your body can have a big impact on your headaches. Try cutting out
caffeine and alcohol and avoiding cigarettes. Regular meals are important for a
headache, especially for people who get headaches from low blood sugar. Try not
to skip meals, particularly breakfast!
A headache can certainly put your
activities or work on hold until you're feeling better, but getting the right
treatment can help you feel better, faster. Instead of trudging through your
day with a headache, take time out to care for yourself. Medications can get
