View Full Version : Headaches/Migranes

January 19th, 2009, 8:16 AM
Ouch! I suffer from them! Can anyone tell me what i can do to calm it down without medicine, cause i hate medicine!

Without medicine? Well I guess you could just rest it off, make sure everything is quiet when you do so, a warm drink would seem like it might help. If all else fails, just take Tylenol.

Good advice, but the wierd thing is, it happens EVERYDAY, without warning. Like ill be walking in the haalls in school, and the next, my head is swimming!

Then my advice would to be to ask a doctor about it as soon as possible. Until then, just don't exert yourself or do anything that you think might cause a migraine.

do anything that you think might cause a migraine.

Such as being on the computer?

As he said, you would get better results from a doctor rather than a Pokemon forum...

I get them a lot too and they are such hell. See, when I get them, it's usually because I didn't eat or other times its because of the terrible heat and they can also be caused my my allergies or stress too.

They are such a pain in the rear end. DX

My mom gets really bad migraine headaches so she has to take special medication and sometimes even pain killers because she just gets so sick because of them. D:

All I can suggest is that, if they really are that bad and nothing you are taking, like tylenol or aspirin...you should definitely try to see your doctor.

Wait, is it the problem with having to swallow pills that you don't like? Because I usually try to do something to get my mind of my headaches. I have a hard time swallowing pills and if that's why, you could always talk to your doctor about something more liquid.

I mean, they really should have a substitute like, a liquid form for those that have a hard time swallowing big pills. DX Also, if you are getting them a lot, it could be due to stress. That is one cause of getting bad headaches if you are stressed and sometimes you could be stressed and yet feel really happy...(either that or that's just me when I'm stressed. XD)

I think it may be from all the music i listen to...

Sweety I have migraine to, and there really is nothing I can do except take medicine, and if I take my medicine as soon as I feel a migraine episode starting then I can avoid the after headache that lasts for weeks, so don't be so stubborn and refuse medicine, the after headaches are the worst because then the wains have expanded to much and are pushing things in your head.

I use medicene and when I need to take them my mom makes me stay home from school, and there really is nothing you can do (that will work) except for medicene, think off it this way, do you want it to last for a day or a month.

Well, it may not be the music but, if you listen to it when it's blasting your ears, than yeah that can cause terrible headaches. D:

January 19th, 2009, 9:04 AM
I can only say either take medicine or sleep it off. That's what I usually have to do.

The only way for you to get the headache away quickly is some Tylenal or Advil. Other than that try and read a book or something - It always calms me down.

I'm lucky, I've never had a migrain. Best advice I know is to try and keep in the dark. Light usually makes things worse.

And FYI, do not watch television in the dark, nor play on your computer in the dark, that will tricker a migraine attack.

Thats Migrain information, not headache. But yeah, you have to do quiet things in the dark like try to read with as little light as possible or something.

This is applicable for any pain: rub the area.
It somehow releases a chemical of some sort that acts as a mild painkiller.

Still, rubbing one's head is rather impractical and looks strange in public; so, a hot drink might help, shouldn't matter what it is.

I get Headaches/Migranes too. And sometimes thery are so bad I end up being sick. All I suggest is medicine, since you cant then loads of rest and hot drinks too. They can caused by a numer of reasons such as your eyes or even dehydration.

January 19th, 2009, 11:50 AM
I say just stay seated and drink lots of water.

I normally have them in the mornings, oddly enough..=/

All i can suggest is to take something that would counter-act the migraine (don't know th name of any particular medicine) or rest. That's pretty much it when it comes to migraines

Ouch, that's horrible! I can empathize -- I've had chronic migraines and headaches for years, as have several other family members. Not fun in the slightest. =(

First of all, even if you are not wanting to take medicine, consider visiting a neurologist. Since you're having them so often and intense enough they can be called migraines, you're going to want their help. They would be able to help you figure what kind of headaches and migraines you're having, as well as your triggers. It could be changes in the barometric pressure, your dietary habits, allergies, stress, or any other number of things, or a combination. Once you know what's causing them, treating them becomes easier.

Some of the non-drug treatments I've tried really depend on the type of headache. For sinus headaches, a hot cloth over your nose can relive pressure and ease the pain. Tension headaches can be pushing on some pressure points on your hand/neck/etc. Some of them, I've even gotten relief from pulling my hair for short periods of time. The best thing for any type, though, has been sleeping it off in a dark, quiet room.

A forum like PC probably isn't the best place to get too much medical advice overall, so definitely research and figure out the specifics to your case. And here's hoping you find something that works soon!

I found out my headaches were caused by low levels of iron and a low amount of a vitimin called B12. Obviously, I went to a doctor and it doesn't mean everyone else is going to be the same, heh. You should go to a doctor just in case.

Close your eyes and rub the sides of the bridge of your nose. Works for me. :3 Drinking tea with Chamomile in it will also help - I recommend Sleepytime herbal Chamomile & Spearmint tea.

the bitter end.

I have a hot drink and take a hot shower to remedy this sort of thing.

January 19th, 2009, 2:41 PM
Geeze, this topic is giving me a headache.

I would just rest or take a warm shower. Sadly, most of my headaches
happen at school so both of those options are not going to work out.

Also, most headaches happen due to a lack of a decent amount of water.
If this is the cause, I would suggest drinking more water to prevent them.

The best(for me), is cold compress and a good long rest. It relieves you from stress, which is the #1 cause of headaches.

I've had a migraine before and honestly, I can say it was definitely one of the worst headaches I have ever experienced. Apparently I got it because I might've been allergic to something I ate or something dealing with food. I haven't had one since then. I actually haven't had a regular headache for quite a while now that I think about it.

I never really get bothered by them. When I have a headache and feel crappy I just sleep most of it off if I can.

January 20th, 2009, 8:05 AM
I've been getting headaches a lot since September, although they've been becoming less frequent.

They always put me in a fowl mood, Doctor says it's lack of sleep or stress.

January 20th, 2009, 10:21 AM
Well, I don't suffer from that but I do get a headache now and again... And no, I don't know any other way besides medicine... you'll have to take your pills! xD

Can glasses affect headaches, cause i wear them, and never really liked them...

Well, it depends on the person and the glasses. If they're straining your vision or applying pressure to the right/wrong parts of your head, it is possible. If they're a problem -- take them in for a refitting or get a new eye exam to determine if you need a new prescription?
