There is a difference between an actual headache verses a migraine. As a chronic migraine sufferer myself, there are many different triggers than can set the pain into motion. If you feel the pain begin, it is best to treat it RIGHT AWAY and not wait until its unbearable. For headaches, there are plenty of over the counter remedies. For me, I have prescription pain meds for my migraines. But I would take something like Excedrine Tension Headache in hopes of that helping first before I break down and take a prescription med. A cool compress, a quiet, dark,cold room where you can relax is also helpful.
turn off anything making noise, (kids might be harder lol). dont be watching tv, or be playing on the computer, it will make it worse. go to sleep, and put a cold (wet and squeezed out) cloth on your forehead. if my mom did it for me and it worked, it will work for you too!
Drink Smart Water and take 2 Excedrin. Lay down in a cool, dark, quiet room with No computer, flashing lights, or any electronic type screen. You can have quiet, soft music or relaxation sounds, but make sure it is on very low, where you can just barely hear it. Put a warm moist cloth over your eyes, and a cool cloth on the back of your neck. Now, close your eyes. Starting at the top of your head, and working on one section at a time, imagine the tension in each body part just turning to water and slowly flowing down the body and out the bottom of the feet, Just relax and drift off to sleep.

Drink some water. Dehydration is one of the main reasons why people develop headaches. If headaches is something that happens to you often, rather than looking at ways to TEMPORARILY relieve your headache quickly, you should look at undertaking avenues which can prevent headaches from re-appearing constantly. One way of doing so is through Chiropractic adjustments. For more information on how this may possibly help you, go to: http://www.chiropractic-care.com.au/headaches-and-migraines
