Take Advantage of These Resources to Find Maximum Relief

The NHF is here to provide you useful with methods and resources to manage your headaches. Below we list a few methods that we suggest you try, in combination with your current treatment, in order to attempt to get relief.

Keep a Headache Diary in order to track your triggers and discover how to avoid your headaches. Ask yourself the following questions to figure out your headache history:

  • When did you start having headaches?
  • How often do they occur? At what time of day? During the week or on weekends? How long do they last?
  • Where is the pain?
  • Which word best describes it: throbbing, pounding, splitting, stabbing, and blinding?
  • If you are a woman, are your headaches associated with your menstrual cycle?
  • What triggers your headache: certain foods, certain physical activities, bright light, strong odors, change in temperature or altitude, noise, smoke, stress, oversleeping?
  • What symptoms do you experience prior to the headache?
  • Does anyone else in your family suffer from headaches?
  • Do you notice visual disturbances before or after your headaches?
  • Do you suffer from more than one type of headache
