6 Aleve
3 Tylenol
1 headache that will not go away and is making me want to go beg someone to reinstate trepanning so they can open my forehead and let the evil spirits out. Or possibly gack. Or both.

*crawls into a hole bed to die try to sleep it away.

Oh no! The evil headache of DOOM has come to visit you after stopping off at my house on Thursday. Sleep is of the good, in this case.

It was - headache of doom has mostly gone away. Though it's fluttering around the edges of my skull going "Nyah nyah! I'm not touching you! Neener..."

Ice pack on the neck of the neck. 2-3 Excedrin. Maybe a regular coke (caffeine really, really helps) Dark room. Hope this helps you feel better soon

Tylenol doesn't do anything as far as I can tell. aleve is tough as it is long acting so if it doesn't work you have to wait forever until you can take something else. I really think it is better for cramps.

I've gotten the Excedrin rec from a number of people, so I'll have to try it next time (there wasn't any in the house, and roomie had the car, last night).

Aleve usually works for me, but this particular headache just seemed to laugh at it and keep on truckin'.

I don't usually get headaches as strong/light-sensitive as I would associate with a migraine, but this one may well have been. It was to the point where I was standing in front of the freezer pressing my head woozily against a bag of frozen bagels...

Thank you. (The demons seem to have fled today, or at least are hibernating...)
