 have had a tension headache now for a day or so.  work isn't helping - ha!  but i took 2 fiorcet today and 4 advil - but didn't take the fiorcet together which seems to not work so well.  3 hours apart cause i thought one would do the trick.  always takes 2.  but didn't want to since i took the advil first. 
 
anyway, does anyone know of a good fast remedy that really works?  put heat on my neck lst night but did nothing.  i'll try ice tonight.  it came on from a panick attack yesterday.  i also had a crying spell trying to get my emotions and cryg always causes a bad headache with me.  ugh!  it is always behind my ears on those bones and goes around my neck and today it's on top of my head too.  i know it's from stress and tensing up during panick attack.  i probably should have just taken a xanax today to help relieve the tension.  anyway, any good remedies????

I find that ice helps more than heat sometimes. Give it a shot, hope it helps you.

I second the ice. Also, sounds weird, but when I'm at home I sometimes tie a stretchy dress sock tightly around my forehead. For some reason the pressure helps relieve my headache. It'll give you a good laugh if nothing else!

I have had my headache for weeks. I went to a chiropractor yesterday and it helped some.

I am not big into the neck cracking but he pressed on the muscles on my shoulders and neck and I yelped!

He gave me a really good massage with some sort of heated lotion. It felt so good. The headache is still there a bit but I think it might have relieved it some. I am going back on Monday.
