Apart from taking pain pills, you could try drinking some tea. Chamomile especially is said to be a good stress-reliever; it might help your headache.

Massage on the back of your neck. Drink some hot green tea with couple slides of fresh ginger.

Well - glad you asked -
Try an ice ice pack wrapped in a wash cloth- on the back of your neck,
Sending cool blood to your head,
Thus making your headache more
Tolerable. And also breath in through
Your nose and out your mouth.
And be in a quiet dark room
Hope this will help,
I get killer migraines , and this helps me.

Ok so this is going to sound weird but if you massage the space between your forefinger and your thumb your headache goes away. I don't really know how this works but it does. I learned it on a massage therapy class and I highly recommend it, it always works for me.

Works on the pressure point/ nerve located there, your whole body has such "pressure points", used a lot in Eastern Healing.:-)

Also when you feel a headache coming on, first, try drinking water ? a lot of water. It's Dodai's favourite trick for ridding herself of the dreaded head vise. Don't get heavy handed with the cold, though; drinking water that's frigid can give you even more of a headache. Keep it room temperature. Drinking peppermint tea may help, but be careful when fighting headaches with caffeine; you might just make it worse. Try eating something; almonds, for example, contain a compound that can help with head pain.

While drinking very cold water can make a headache worse, I've found that putting medium-cold things on my head can offer temporary relief. As someone who sits around staring at a screen all day like some kind of blogging vegetable, I often get tension headaches behind my eyeballs. When that happens, I'll take a five minute break and lie on my back in a darkened room with a slightly-cooler-than-room-temperature damp washcloth on my forehead or over my eyes. Another thing that works well is eucalyptus or peppermint oil-infused lotion cooled in the fridge or freezer and dabbed behind the earlobes and at the nape of the neck combined with a neck self-massage (sounds way dirtier than it is). Start by pressing two fingers on both hands firmly into the space behind your ears and jaw, and then work your way back to the base of your skull, pressing firmly but not squeezing in 1-2 second increments. Then, work your way down your neck. Repeat as necessary. If I don't have fancy lotion, I use just plain old unscented lotion, but I always pop it in the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes so it's nice and cold.

If you've got a partner around, and you're on good enough terms with them that you're okay with them squeezing your head, have them place the palm of their hand about where your "third eye" is ? between and slightly above the innermost points of your eyebrows. Have them place their other hand on the back of your head, and press. For some reason, this action always makes my tension headaches go away for at least a couple of minutes.

Focus on how you're holding your body up. Are you clenching your jaw? Is your tongue pressing against the roof of your mouth? If you are, then stop; both of those actions can cause headaches. So, too, can slouching, holding tension in your neck, and gum chewing.

But the causes of your headaches may actually be in your mind.

Try sinus OTCs. Often a headache is really a sinus ache and they are miserable!

Depends, if its a Hangover Headache.. Lots of fluids, aspirin, sleep and time...
Sinus...Aspirin/ Allleve & Decongestant.
Migraine....try sheldons suggestions made earlier, another one is to fill large sink with Hot water( as Hot as you can take) and place your arms in up to above elbows, soak untill cant take it anymore. Re-directs blood (and pressure) away from Head through the heat pulling it more into your arms.
If none of those help, go see a Doctor or go to ER!

Eat a mint, take a nap, soak in a hot tub, it's probably eye strain. Close your eyes. Stop looking at the answers! It hurts your eyes :(

Find out what could be causing you're headache first. It took me years to figure out that eating too much pork caused my headaches. Yes foods can do that.! Sometimes a Chiropractor can adjust your back and it helps with the headaches. There could be a pinched nerve causing headaches

Occasionally taking a pill to treat a headache is perfectly reasonable.

Home Remedies for Headache
Tip 1:
Roast some caraway seeds dry. Tie in a soft handkerchief or muslin cloth and sniff to get a relief from headaches.

Tip 2:
Apply the paste of 3-4 cloves on the fore head.

Tip 3:
A peeled and chopped apple, with a sprinkle of salt eaten first thing in the morning, for at least a week will cure chronic headaches.

Tip 4:
Make a herbal tea with 10-15 holy basil leaves(tulsi), 5-6 peppercorns and 1/2" ginger piece, powder. Keep in an air tight bottle. Take 2 pinches with warm water when a headache starts.

Tip 5:
Massage head with rosemary oil.

Tip 6:
Add water to 1 tbsp gingerpowder. Heat gently in a pan. Apply the warm poultice on forehead. Keep for 15 minutes.

A good way to get rid of a headache is obviously medicine or you can take a nap. The thing that i found is that, if you do stay awake, go to a dark place. Bright light make the headaches worse.
