6 Ways to Get Rid of Headaches
The best way to get rid of a headache quickly may depend on what’s causing it and what type of headache it is. A primary headache is caused by overactivity or problems with the pain-sensitive structures in your head, according to the Mayo Clinic. Common types of primary headaches include migraine attacks and tension headache caused by stress.
A secondary headache is a symptom of a disease that can trigger pain-sensitive nerves in the head. There are many conditions that can cause a secondary headache, from a sinus infection to a brain aneurysm to hangovers.
1. Try a Cold Pack
If you have a migraine, place a cold pack on your forehead. Ice cubes wrapped in a towel, a bag of frozen peas, or even a cold shower may lessen the pain. Keep the compress on your head for 15 minutes, then take a break for 15 minutes.
2. Dim the Lights
Bright or flickering light, even from your computer screen, can cause migraine headaches.
3. Practice Relaxation
Whether it’s stretches, yoga, meditation, or progressive muscle relaxation, learning how to chill out when you’re in the middle of a headache can help with the pain.
You can do it yourself. A few minutes massaging your neck and temples can help ease a tension headache, which may result from stress.
5. Take some ginger
Brew some fresh ginger tea and sip it slowly.
6. Rest and relax
Take extra rest and try a new breathing exercise.
