Introduction: How to Rid Yourself of a Headache

Picture of How to Rid Yourself of a Headache

Headaches hurt ... Sometimes they hurt a lot. I am going to keep this as short as possible to get you better sooner.

Steps 1-4: All you need is warm water, something for the water to go in (bucket or bath tub),small towel, something from your freezer (ice pack, peas, corn, etc...)!

-OR-

Step 5: A working shower

DISCLAIMER: I am not a doctor and if your headache is serious, you should see a doctor. Do not rely on this to treat serious and persistent headaches.

Step 1: Warm Water

You will need a small bucket for warm water or your bath tub. It will need to be big enough for your hands and feet.

Fill the bucket with warm water or start to fill your tub until it's high enough to submerge your hands and feet.

Step 2: Ice Pack

Next, get an ice pack or frozen peas or something from your freezer and wrap it in a small towel. Lean your head down and place it just above the back of your neck.

Step 3: Waiting

Make sure your hands and feet are in the warm water and your ice pack stays in place. Once your headache is gone, stay like that for about 5-10 minutes longer just to be safe.

Step 4: Move On

Move on with your day. Enjoy it headache free!

Step 5: Hot Shower

Hot showers are cures for the worst type of headache, migranes.

If you have a headache and you are up for standing, take a hot shower. It can also act as a decongestant and reduce anxiety among other things!

Hot showers do help a lot sometimes I think. I pretty much have every head pain imaginable joined with chronic migraines etc and one thing I noticed is that when the pains resonating from the side of my head or if it's due to inflammation, the shower is the last place I want to be. Most of the time it just amplifies the pain 10 fold or sometimes it makes me black out. I'm an odd case but I thought maybe I should just post my info just in case. Other than that GOOD POST, I always tell people this stuff but they do not listen. The response I usually get is "well ill just take some Tylenol"...

You forgot the easiest one. Tell your teenager to go to their room. Lol

I didn't think about that. I have no kids though...
