Remedy for a headache

  1. I crawled my butt out of bed just to get advice. I have had a terrible headache since last night. It is coming out of the base of my neck and I have tried: ice, heat, tylenol, motrin, aspirin, a warm bath, massage from the hubby, drinking plenty of fluids, Ca/Mg supplement. I even dug up a Vicodin from when I sprained my ankle last Nov. I don't know what else to do. I am suppose to work tonight but my head hurts and I am so nauseous that I don't know how I'll make it.

    Anybody have some alternatives (other than sex cause the hubby is at work)?

    ouch... my advice: call in to work, take something that will knock you out the rest of the night. Even if the headache does go away in time, you'll feel yuck.... Hope you feel better.

    The only thing that works for me when I get a bad headache is a cup of strong coffe and 3 aspirins. That's if I can keep it down. Good luck and call in sick!

    The only thing that does it for me when I have one of my doozies is the vicodin/ibuprofen combo, with sleep in a dark room, with a fan in my face.

    It's time to call off sweetie. Hope you feel better soon.

    P.S. I knew there had been a thread about this but I was too damn lazy to look. Bad BB etiquette, I know

    For really bad headaches I use Execdrin migrane. Works wonders. May need to call off though.
