On the Menu: Food-Related Headache Pain
April 10, 2019
Some foods can trigger headaches, as can dehydration and skipped meals. What bothers one person doesn’t affect another, so tracking your headaches in a journal can help determine your specific food triggers.
Massage the Pain Away
Before you take a pain reliever for that nagging headache, try self-massage. Studies how massage therapy can relieve the pain of tension headaches.
Try gently rubbing at your temples, the bridge of your nose or the base of the skull. A mini-massage of the head, neck and shoulders can also ease headache pain.
