How would you suggest relieving a caffeine headache, without caffeine?

Report as

When I went off pop, now 3 years, believe it or not brushing my teeth really well helped. Something about 90% of the nerves to your brain are in your top teeth and brushing them stimulates the nerves and helps the caffeine headaches go away. I usually had to do this 5 times and day (had really clean teeth) and them before I knew it it was gone and I hadn't even realized it. My sister who is a dental hygentist told me about it. Just took about a week. Also, caffeine headaches will hurt work around your cycle time but still try brushing your teeth, concentrating on upper teeth. But don't brush TOO hard.

Brush the heck out of your teeth. Also, it's OOOKAAAYYY to take 2 aspirin . You'd be surprised...they WON'T get rid of the headache like you wish, BUT will make it more of a proper detox environment situation. Then I started taking only 1 aspirin when I brushed my feet at the noon brushing. THEN I GOT addicted to brushing my teeth ! No joke!!! I really did:!. I was always going off to brush m teeth !! Ha ha.

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water or drinking some form of tea. (A non-caffeinated form)
If possible, Take a short nap.
I have also been informed that some forms of aromatherapy may help, but I haven't tried it to say it helped me.

You got the 'aromatherapy' idea from me. And yet you still haven't tried it.
Come on, Luis! :)

Tea has caffeine. I'm trying to stay away from caffeine. A nap isn't possible since I'm at work. Thanks though :)

I understand some teas have caffeine, That is why I was saying only "Some".
Hopefully, Your headache may be relieved! Good luck,friend. :)

Ask my doctor about a headache? I think I'll save the co-pay and fix it myself. Thanks for not helping.

Well if you are not opposed to medicine you can easily take a pain reliever such as Tylenol or aspirin. If you prefer more natural things, peppermint is always a good substitute, or a nice cool cloth on your head, or just try to sleep.

Sleep isn't an option. I'm at work. And aspirin and tylenol aren't working. Thanks though.

Oh no! Well, you can always try acupressure around your head to help move the vessels around to try to contract them. Try peppermint tea, it will help with hydration and hopefully take the edge off.

Drink lots of water. I always get a migraine every single day and it's cause I'm dehydrated. I hope the headaches stop! Also, just be in a quiet place and don't be where there is much light so staying away from electronics should help and you should lay down if you can!
Feel better!
