My headaches last long periods of time.

Over the counter products do not work.

I've tried everything from standing on my head to guzzling a beer with a straw and nothing works.

Are there any new medications or remedies that I may not be aware of?
please let me know.

thanks,
peady

It depends. You gotta learn what triggers these headaches. Are they in response to pressure changes in the Atmosphere? If so, then take a couple of Sinutabs. Is it eyestrain? Us Asprin. Migraine Headache? Ibprofin. Do not take Sinutab or Ibprofin on an empty stomach.

Keep well hydrated.

My kid get's nasty headaches and it's usually directly related to her fluid intake.

Rest - If you can take even fifteen minutes to just rest...it helps.

Diet - eat well.

If it happens often and is troublesome see your doctor for some advice and suggestions.

Headaches from dehydration are really quite common. If you drink a lot of water already, it'd be best to see your doctor

Any headache condition is nothing to fool around with. Could be as simple as mild hypo-volemia or something really, really nasty. You don't know. Go to a physician, a real live MD and seek advice... I used to have headaches too, almost everday and would be worst at 3:00 in the afternoon. I was too stubborn to seek medical assistance. I had a stroke.

I'm in front of the computer 10 hours a day ........

Maybe that has something to do with it ?

I second the hydration advice, and with all the time you spend in front of the computer, eyestrain could be a factor, as well. Where on/in your head does it ache?

Yes, it very well could. Get yer eyes checked. As has been said, headaches have any number of causes--and that includes spinal and neck problems--and that is a particular computer-user plague. Believe it or not, even your CHAIR can make a big difference in how you feel after a day in front of the screen. Another thing is to get up every 45 minutes and walk; moving keeps you from locking up.

I also agree that you should see a physician and especially if this is a chronic problem. 2 a week is a "chronic problem" and telling of something else going on. My advice is don't play with it.

Thanks for all your replies.
It never occurred to me that my daily intake of fluids could be the cause,
not to mention the computer. thanks

If no over-the-counter remedy works, see a doctor. There are prescription remedies available for migrane headaches.

Oxycontin, Vicodin, Lortab, Morphine.

All are guaranteed to work.

Peace

Drink lots of purified water if you have headaches. I rarely get headaches, maybe because I drink a half gallon of water per day.

Like others have suggested, drinking a lot of fluids (water) will help quite a bit...a headache can simply be a sign that you are dehydrated. Something like a relaxing chamomile/hibiscus tea probably couldn't hurt...also, many people have remarked that there is a common illegal plant which is a miracle for curing headaches. Of course, since it's illegal, I won't suggest for you to try it...

When I get a nasty headache I take over the counter meds.


tiger balm (chinese supermarkets stock this) rubbed onto the temples can help.
BE CAREFUL NOT TO GET INTO EYES....OUCHY


A small rice sack made from satin or similar material and scented with lavender oil also has a cooling effect and helps dilate constricted blood vessels in the head.

Do not heat the sack USE COLD FOR BEST RESULTS

Have you been to a doctor? I don't want to make you worry and cause the headaches to get worse but if you are having headaches all the time you really need to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Start taking magnesium if you don't already. (especialy if you find that you often want or crave chocolate).
If you don't have narcotics from your Doc... as soon as the headache begins (or the signs you get before your headache) - take BOTH asperin AND tylonal WITH caffine. If you have RX pain killers - ask the pharmisist if it is asperin or tylonal based. If it is tylonal based, take the max dose, then mid way throught till the next dose take 2 asperin (2 hours later if you can take it again in 4 hours.... 3 hours later if you can take it again in 6 hours)...
And if it is asperin based, take max dose of tylonal 2 or 3 hours later (in mid term as above).

Always take WITH caffine.

Asperin and tylonal TOGETHER with caffine are the best for a headache.

If the problem is sinus...

Actual, what I've written above is good for any reason your headachs are starting... but for additional help, I'd have to know why your having the headaches. Stress, back trouble, sinus, eyes, etc.
