Eat a banana. They are high in potassium. Bananas are a Superfood and can help with many ailments including headaches and cramps :)

I'm pregnant and can't take medications, excluding tylenol but that doesn't really help much. That's why I asked what kind of food would help..

Normally Chocolate causes headaches, when I have a migraine I can drink caffeine, which speeds up the blood blow, or take two Benadryl with a pain reliever such as motrin. This is some of the ingredients in the medicine the doctors gave me.

Anything with caffeine in it.. Not so sure there is a food with caffeine (accept chocolate but not enough to make a difference) but drinks like coke, or a variety of others there are plenty of... Caffeine is often found in many prescription and over the counter medications for headache relief it increases their effectiveness by as much as 40%.
Headaches are caused in part by the dilation of blood vessels in the head, caffeine being a vasoconstrictor ( constricts the blood vessels , counter acting thus helping to relieve your pain ;) ..)
Hope that helps,

Your welcome ;) I just hope it helps you! I've been cursed with migraines and for me "bc powder" works the best ( it has 65mg of caffeine in it ) it's yucky tasting but having apple juice to take it with kills that bitter taste )

migraines usually coincide with hormonal fluctuations Taking OTC meds with caffeine does help. ice pack on the neck also provides some relief
Report as
Good one (forgot bout ice pack) thanks!!

Drink lots of water. Have something with veggies and/or carbohydrates. Some hearty pasta/bean stew maybe?

I was just listening to a broadcast on CBC radio that dealt with this. Apparently, when the brain is only .5% dehydrated, it causes pain. If you drink lots of water, it will be saturated again. You are dehydrated long before you begin to feel thirsty. Drink lots of water and lie down in a dimly lighted room and your headache should pass.
