The owner of the Chinese buffet came over to our table and asked, "How you rike the meal?"
I said, "To be honest, the chicken is very rubbery."
The owner says, "Ooh, thank you! Your date very rubbery too!"

More alcohol

caffeine + sitting on the bottom of your shower/bathtub in the dark with the water hitting your head + excedrin migraine if necessary

notthisagain said...

also the smell of menthol & mint can help

Farmgirl said...

Hydrate

Jennifer said...

Tylenol & a heating pad. On the face of its a sinus headache, or neck/scalp for tension.

Donna said...

@Jennifer +++ heating pad
Hydrate with alkaloid water

Dena said...

A nap.

My chiro says lying down, with eyes covered and an icepack at the base of skull, cures 90% of headaches of unknown origin.

Mrs Meat said...

I do find a good wank sorts out many things. That or a cup of tea.

Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley said...

@ Mrs. Meat - do you also get embarrassed when you shout out someone else's hand during a good wank?

Former CNN Anchor Candy Crowley said...

Wolfie asked me to cancel his appointment at the sperm bank.

So I called them up and said he could not cum today.

Brayson87 said...

Identifying the source is key, dehydration, hunger, sleep deprivation etc, try fulfilling those needs. Otherwise medicate, to hell with that other hippy sh!t.

shakey said...

Marijuana.

Leslie said...

Daily magnesium, a cup of coffee & a Zomig.

Ulf said...

Cayenne in capsule or tincture. Or use acupressure on the occipital area

EMDR it! (Eye Movement De-Sensitization and Reprocessing): Rate your headache, 1-10. Ten means you are in the ER to get treatment, 1 means no pain. Squish the sides of your head (or that of another if they have a headache), then the front and back, sides, front and back. Then, make your eyes move in a figure eight or two side-by-side circles. This is easier if someone is moving their hand and you just follow their hand making the figure eight signs or the side-by-side circles, without moving your head. Then do the head squishes again, and the figure eights again. Rate your headache again. Keep doing this process until you either get rid of it or get it down to a point you can deal with it.

Mrs Meat said...

I never shout whilst wanking, Candy. It might startle Mr Meat out of his nap. It's not easy to explain why I'm rubbing myself furiously after complaining about having A Headache.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

@Brayson, shitting dissipates headache too. It relieves the pressure on nerve in your spine.

Low Key said...

Depends on what type of headache it is. If it's tension or neck, ibuprofen, heat, pain rub (I favor Tiger Balm Extra Strength because it stays put and doesn't reek as bad as other remedies). If it's sinus, original Sudafed (available behind the pharmacy counter but without a prescription), more ibuprofen and heat directly on the face. If it's hangover or indeterminate, water, coffee, a good meal, and more ibuprofen, follow-up with vicodin and a nap if it's not a hangover. Always visit your doctor if a headache lasts over 24 hours in spite of these home remedies.
Bonus tip: an easy way to apply heat to any part of the body is to fill an old (clean) sock with dry white rice, microwave for 1 - 2 minutes, wrap it in a towel, and apply to the affected area. Be careful not to burn yourself with your rice sock! This is especially effective for sinus because the rice will mold itself to fit your face.

Blacksmith said...

For me...Turkish Coffee.

Brayson87 said...

Vicodin, codeine, butalbital, etc. If it hurts less than being burned with a cigarette it's not a real headache.

zerooptions said...

Glad you asked!
I followed the guidelines in this book by zuzana bic.
In a nutshell exercise, diet and proper rest.
It didn't eliminate all my migraines but it lessened the number of headaches, duration and intensity.

Freckles said...

Mine are so bad that I get botox shots in my skull and shoulders. I also formulated a pain cream for my migraines, about 15 years ago. Migraines suck

BestMan said...

Fever few, cbg, and turmeric tincture, I make. Works like a charm.

Pogue Mahone said...

Weed! It's even eliminated my bad migraines.

Cee Kay said...

Pot, and it works like a charm.

David Howes said...

Plus 1 @sandybrook

Preferably, vodka that's been distilled at least 6 times.

Shaken, not stirred!

Liv said...

Jalapenos and water.

Gator said...

Aspirin

a beautiful virago named hope said...

If it's an ocular migraine I have to turn off the lights, maybe take a nap.
Orange soda and cheese crackers work, too.

Sarton Bander said...

cocodamol and isotonic drink

emeraldcity said...

Homeopathic Belladonna, works a treat for most headaches. QEII always has some in her handbag.

shakey said...

Low Key It helps me, but it might not be for everyone. I know some people who get bad headaches from it, but I don’t know if they’re mixing it with tobacco (which is AWFUL). I’d like to get enough to try the rice in a sock thing - make a soft “pillow” that I can use on my face or lay it flat under my pillowcase and sleep on it just to see if that could work rather than having a few puffs before bed. And also find out if I wake up more refreshed.

Bluestar said...

Sleep is the only natural remedy that works for me.

OKC Teacher said...

I’ve had headaches my entire life, Migraine/Tension (I have the “typical” Migraine symptoms”, rarely). I have been to 3 Neurologists & had CAT Scans & a MRI.....Here are some of my home remedies:

3 Equate Extra Strength Headache Relief (Generic Excedrine Migraine)
Coke or Mountain Dew
Hot shower or bath to loosen muscles
Neck & Shoulder Stretches (Massages if you can afford them)
Lay on a Tennis Ball to release & relax neck/shoulder muscles
Bio Freeze, Pain Patches (Icy Hot, Absorbine Jr, etc) @ bedtime
Cold/Hot Bean Bag Things-(You can make them with fabric & corn kernels) Etsy is a great place to find them
(Keep it the freezer or you can warm it in the Microwave)
