I generally don’t know what to do when I get a bad headache..if I’m deprived of calories..I eat something otherwise I just go to sleep. Very helpful post!

This is a great post Era ! Thanks ! I very frequently get migraines and for instant relief I always pop a disprin or a saridon and that’s so bad. I’m gonna try some of these tips next 😀 😀
