Avatar m tn You could try hot/cold/hot/cold/hot compress treatment each for 5 minutes to see if this provides any relief. Can you take ibuprofen as it helps with any inflammation?
Avatar f tn Best thing I have found is put your feet in warm to hot water and a cold compress on your neck. It redirects blood flow from your head and relieves pressure. You never want to put heat on or around your head when feeling a headache coming on.

Avatar n tn Apply cold compress on and off during the day. Splash a lot of cold water (not freezing cold but cool) on face on and off. See if this helps. Otherwise, consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!
Avatar f tn Put a hot towel over you face or cold. I use hot but some people say cold. I wet a wash cloth out it in the microwave for 35 seconds or so and lay it on my face and it's instant releif.
Avatar f tn Use a compress. Apply a warm compress (such as a hot towel) to your face, eyes and temples — or try a cold compress on the back of your neck. Try massage. Ask someone to massage your shoulders and neck to relieve tension. You might rub your temples, too.

Try to sleep during the day if you can I always felt better after a nap!
