    Ok so the headache gods unleashed the fooking foory on me. For the past week or so I have been getting these horrible headaches that start at the base of my neck and work their way up behind my eyeballs. Pain forces me to shut my eyes. I even wake up with these damn things every other night. I have some jaw problems (TMJ) and I know they are related, but the question here is what are the best over the counter headache meds ?

    Excedrin (sp??) or the supermarket generic brand version of it always works for me with real bad headaches. I think it has something to do with caffine

    imo, alieve is the strongest over the counter you can get.

    Caffine has some truth to it too. If you were to go to the E.R., they would give you a shot of caffine straight in your ass. Seriously.

    I used to have to take ibuprofen for a really bad toothache I had. It would work allright most of the time.

    Any reasoning "behind" this? Seriously why the caffine? I didn't buy the that stuff becuase I didn't want to be up all night, but hell if it makes any sense then I shall purchase some. I guess I could counter the caffine with some beer eh?

    Hey! I am an expert on this! The most sure fire way I have found to get rid of these "just wanna die" headaches is to take 800mg of Ibuprofin. Preferrably the large single white tablets, AND go to Wal mart and get one of the "Sinus headache patches"..they are large white patches you place on your forehead. If you have one of these headaches I am talking about, you won't care what it looks like...Go to bed and sleep for about 12 hours and that usually fixes mine.
    The other alternative is to take a double dose of Nyquil. ukesmilie: it tastes like shit, but it works every time. Knock you on your ass AND fix your headache.

    Advil, but I'm up to having to take 3 or 4 whenever I have a bad one or when I get these bad leg-cramps. I'm starting to wonder if I'm building a tolerance to it.

    [/QUOTE]I think it has to do with the cause of headaches being arteries/veins/cappilaries or whatever being inflamed, expanding and thus putting pressure on sensitive nerve endings. Caffine constricts the vessles themselves, relieving the pressure. Its taking a different approach to killing a headache, that I really agree with. It hits the root cause of the headache, rather than dulling the nerves that relay pain by the damming of the transmission itself. A little more eastern than western, but it makes sense to me!

    Ugggh, I get those headaches all the time. Extra Strengh Excedrine kicks it's ass everytime. But your right, cant do that at bedtime. At night I take 2 Excedrine PM's and sleep it off. Another trick I do is tie a bandana around my head really tight! I need to try those sinus patches. Can you get them someplace besdies Wal-Mart? I hate that store!

    Cut a fresh lime in half and rub it on your forehead.

    I know it sounds stupid but it actually works. I don't even remember where I heard about it.

    I used to have wicked migranes. Thank goodness the frequency is much much less lately!!

    Good Luck..

    Just take some regular sinus medicine. I used to get really bad headaches, and was even on medication for a while, but eventually I found (not the friggin' doctors, mind you) sinus medicine works probably 85% of the time to take the edge off [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
