Message length 300 characters recommended

I've had them or headaches last longer than two days. I usually sleep a lot as that is the only thing that helps, besides putting Frankincense, Peppermint or Deep Relief essential oils on my temples and nap of my neck. I have an aversion to meds though and haven't taken Tylenol or Advil in years. I've heard one kind of Tylenol can help.

Another thing to look at is your water intake. Dehydration can cause headaches.

How is your blood pressure? Hypertension can cause headaches.

What kinds of foods have you been eating? Food additives and preservatives have been known to cause migraines. Our daughters all but eliminated their migraines by avoiding the consumption of foods that trigger migraines.
