I have had a headache for HOURS...

Man, I have had this dull headache since like 2pm...It hurts and is very annoying..I don't want to take any pills because It is such a dull throbbing, I feel maybe it will go away on its own soon..

For what it's worth, I feel your pain. I get chronic migraines, which suck, and can't take regular migraine medication, which supersucks, so I have tylenol 3 and I hate to take it if I don't really need to.....which means I spend a lot of time with a headache I'm trying to hope away. You could always try a low dose of ibuprofen (advil) if you wanted to.
Hope you feel better soon!

Try taking a nap for 20-30 mins. If that doesn't work, I'd just take a pill.

Well I would take a tylenol, but could you be a little dehydrated, I was get a dull headache when I don't drink enough water?

That could be it..I literally don't drink all day..Unless at the gym..I do not ever get thirsty so I don't drink usually unless I'm eating.

Lack of caffiene? Lack of food?

If you don't help resolve it soon it'll just stay there or get worse. Most times if I don't take care of mine within 4 hours, they turn into a migraine.

That's an excellent point - I'm always drinking water so I didn't think of it (so sorry!). Usually if I have a dull headache it's due to atmospheric pressure.

You need to get your 8 glasses a day... the Canada food guide says so!

Its true - I drink 8+ glasses a day, its very healthy for you and it also helps with weight loss as well. Very good for you to drink a lot of water.

I'd suggest taking something for it if it hadn't gone away by now. I'd get irritated from it and take something just for it to go away!

Hope you feel better!

More recent studies say 1/2 oz for every 1lb of body weight (so if you weigh 150lbs you need 75 oz of water which is around 9.5 glasses)

Its slowly going away now...I think it was because I ate really unhealthy today..waffles, then Burger King, and a coffee and a latte..NOTHING healthy.

Then I had some oatmeal, and cheese and crackers and it started going away.

I am glad to hear that your headach is starting to go away. I was going to ask if you had eaten recently or eating something with too much sugar or fat, those tend to do things like that to me... But you already answered the question and are starting to feel better, so... I'm keeping my ger well vibes! Just kidding, you can still have them! Keep getting better!
