However, headache still affects life, so there are still many people who want to seek how to relieve headache.
If you also have a primary headache, you can see if these suggestions of mine are suitable for you.
1 Choose the right pillow
Pillow is too low, the blood flow to the brain more, will make people wake up the 2nd-morning headache dizziness, eyelids puffy; pillow is too high, will affect the smooth airway and neck discomfort, pillow height in 8 ~ 12 cm can be. The material of the pillowcase can choose satin pillowcase with zipper, in addition, to choose good bedding is also important, choose the most relaxed and comfortable color, I choose not to go wrong with.black and white bedding set.
2 Massage pain points.
Head massage is mainly to use fingers in the headache area gently rotating massage, help relax the muscles, improve blood circulation to relieve the headache. It is important to note that when kneading points, from light to heavy, gently knead, and finally knead until there is a sense of soreness and swelling is appropriate.
3 Rub the temples
Every morning after waking up and before going to bed at night, use the middle finger of both hands to rub the temples in a circular motion, first rub 7 to 8 circles, and then rub 7 to 8 circles upside down so that the headache can be greatly reduced.
4 Supplement magnesium
Patients should often eat some magnesium-rich food, such as walnuts, peanuts, soybeans, kelp, oranges, almonds, mixed grains, and various green leafy vegetables.
Lie down, and have a good sleep, but avoid sleeping too much, so as not to wake up with a headache instead. A short nap may relieve migraines, but if you do not have a headache, you still need to pay attention to the reasonable regulation of your daily routine.
Some people prefer cold compresses on the forehead and neck, which works for many people, while others prefer hot compresses on the neck or a hot bath. When the headache attack you can use a hot or cold pack to cover the forehead and massage the blood vessels in the temples to relieve the headache. This can stretch the blood vessels and relieve the pressure on the brain from nervous tension, which is very effective for tension headaches. Is the hot towel or hand warmer or something like a hot compress on the forehead, temples, or directly on the headache area, can quickly play a headache relief effect.
7 Release stress
Learn to relax and look at things around you, which can also reduce the chances of migraine attacks. If you are indoors and have a headache, you can walk outside to get some fresh air and relax your body and mind. Or take a hot bath can be a relief.
8 Hot water dipping hands
When migraine attacks, you can submerge your hands in a pot of hot water, the temperature of the water is as hot as your hands can tolerate after entering the water, and insist on dipping for about half an hour to make the blood vessels in your hands dilate and the blood in your brain decrease accordingly, so that the migraine can be gradually reduced.
9 Take painkillers
I often have headaches because of exertion and lack of sleep, this situation is often better after a night of sleep, and then older, even if rest is difficult to relieve, so I began to take some painkillers, while it is also very good for toothache, menstrual cramps, and neuralgia.
