    Help on reducing constant headache

    Hello guys please I need your help and advice, is there anyway I can reduce constant headache?
    Like home remedy because there is little or no availability of a doctor here. Please any help?

    It depends on what is causing the headache. No one here is qualified to inform you on what to do. If it's something serious, ie; high blood pressure, it could be a major issue. See a dr. or go to an ER.

    Thanks Noladrew. God Bless

    Go see a doctor, especially if it is a reoccuring thing. While headaches are not that well understood, you should at least get the most likely causes ruled out.

    As Noladrew said, probably best not to take medical advice from MMOC. You should really try to see a professional, but if that's not an option then I guess the standard advice would be to stay well hydrated, and take some over the counter painkillers if it's really bad (provided that they play well with any existing medication).

    Seriously though, go see a doctor even if you have to travel.

    Could be due to high blood pressure. Lower your salt and sugar intake.

    Drink water! A lot of headaches are actually caused by dehydration which shrinks the brain tissue. I'd recommend adding a salty food as well since total body water retained is based on sodium. Magnesium supplements or from food wouldn't be bad either, just avoid Oxide form as it is poorly absorbed.

    there are dozens of different types and causes of headaches, so go see a doctor. (just google headache types, probably won't really give you any useful tips to fix it, but gives you an idea of why a doctor is a good idea)

    only generic advice that can be given is make sure you drink enough water.

    I had a time, when I had every other day a headache. I went to the doctor and he said to make a 'headache-diary', where I list everything I did. Like: get up at 7, drink coffee, go to work, eat, work, go home, watch tv 2 hours, to bed at 10 p.m. and so on. After a few weeks doing this, my doctor looked at the diary and found some reasons, why I could have the headache.
    1. Oranges and cheese can cause headaches, if your body reacts to it. I stopped eating both = less headache.
    2. Changing time to get up in the morning. If I got up the whole week (incl. weekend) at the same time = less headache.
    3. Drink more water = less headache.

    These are easy things that can cause a headache. Others are stress, tense muscles because doing always the same moves at work or sitting at the computer. But probably it's best to see a doctor if it doesn't stop.

    Check for mold in your residence as that will give headaches. See doctor.

    Dude
    You could have a cold
    Or a brain tumor

    Go see a doctor and don't ask for medical advice on a forum.

    Step one: Staple your testicles to a board. If you think this sounds drastic, your headache isn't that bad.
    Step two: The feeling of having stapled your testicles to a board should override the pain of the headache. Now you have a good reason to go to the ER.
    Step three: Explain to your doctor: "Doc, these staples really hurt, but I have a headache that won't go away"

    Step four: Win! They will put you on very serious meds that will have you not noticing much of anything.

    Wait, let me rephrase that, is this why medical advice threads are banned?

    The three most common causes of headaches: Lack of water, Lack of sleep, Lack of caffeine (if you are used to it).
    Start checking out those, drink more water, sleep more, drink some coffee if you are used to that.

    Even if they end up not helping, none of these will hurt you

    try drinking more water, constant headache may be a sign of dehydration
    or alternative high blood pressure could also be a cause

    for safety drink more and reduce salt(or alternative use more potassium salt)

    and always ask a doctor as secund opinion
