Personally I get both headaches, and severe migraines
If its just a headache, I can take liquid advil and it well help dull it. If it doesn't, I have strong anti-inflammatories I can take.
Migraines: because I don't get them often, I chose not to be on a migraine medicine. Instead I take anti inflammatories + pain relief. If its a really bad one, I'm outta luck till it decides to ease up, no med helps. A quiet dark room and a cool wet cloth ease it a touch. I can usually avoid full blown ones by avoiding my triggers, which are mainly different scents (chemicals, gas, perfume, even strongly scented candles, etc).
Unfortunately there are times where people bathe in cologne or perfume and I'm done in.
I'm sooo happy that more places around here are becoming scent-free
Scent allergies are on the rise, and alot of migraine sufferers are sensitive to heavy smells.
