You may find this a bit off the wall but in Vietnam you can only try to imagine the high level of stress they suffered therefore headaches daily.In fact it was so common that they would anticipate one actually causing one.
Urine is good for more than jellyfish stings, athletes foot and golden showers....did you know it can be used to cure a headache as well? To cure yourself of a headache, simply take a small sample of your urine, in a cup or a bowl. Position your nose slightly above the urine and slowly inhale for 30-60 seconds. Your headache will be gone. This works because there are chemicals in your urine that relax muscles. When air touches the urine, it evaporates and the chemicals become vapors. This is also why rubbing urine on a sore muscle relieves pain.
One of the major causes for headaches is also the quickest cure ... . absolute truth .... caffeine . I have been diagnosed with cluster migraine headaches , and they are terrible . I am on all sorts of meds for it . I was instructed to stay away from Coca Cola , chocolate , etc . but , when I get a headache , a quick infusion of caffeine sure does a quicker job thAn any medicine prescribed by my doctor .
I am thrilled with the calibre of answers to this question - well done everybody. Basically I do not recommend painkillers because they rarely work and can cause aggravations you really don't want in your body. Stay hydrated (pure WATER), use ice packs on the pain, rest in a darkened room and rub a few drops of pure Essential Oil of Lavender into your temples. Eating a leaf of Feverfew a day keeps the headaches away!!! And to understand all that is involved, read up on one of two of these:

Depends what's causing your headache. Couple things to try: . Persistant dull headaches can be caused by tension in the muscles running from the back of your head down the top of your shoulders. My chiropractor taught me how to relieve such headaches: Sit up straight in a straight-backed chair. Reach the left arm behind you and take hold of the left chair leg. Turn your head 90 degrees to the left. With your right arm, still sitting up straight and facing left, gently pull your head diagonally away from your left shoulder to gently stretch the muscle. Repeat for other side.
This may not help you tonight, but I find a dash of taurine powder disolved in water helps boost the paracetamol (it's a calcium channel blocker, like many migraine medicines). You can get a bottle of taurine in powder or tablets fairly cheaply from a vitamin supplier. I like the powder because it's fast-acting and cheap. (I take it daily as a supplement for other reasons - it's what the body uses to manufacture CoQ-10, which is getting so much good press lately but costs an arm and a leg).

Placing something soft and cool over your forehead can help the blood vessels constrict, which might ease some of the pain of the headache. This works particularly well if the problem is concentrated in your temples or sinuses.
