Staying Healthy: Headaches

I am a headache-victim, -survivor, -conqueror!  I get allergy-related headaches, stress headaches and worst of all, migraines.  If headaches affect you, get help:

  • Make an appointment to see your health care provider for an accurate diagnosis.  Become informed about your headache type and treatment options.  I sometimes feel petty bringing up my headaches at regular doctor’s visits … but they aren’t /just/ headaches. They are a physical and mental derailments!
  • To help with occasional tension headaches, try a warm shower, rest or relaxation techniques.  Just closing your eyes for 20 minutes can help a lot.
  • Some headaches are caused by dehydration.  Many physicians recommend that you drink at least eight-ounces of water or a sports drink at the onset of a headache.  Right now, go fill up a sports-bottle or large cup with water.  Make a goal.  Finish that water and you may be on the road to feeling healthier!
