If you have some rice and a tube sock, you can make a rice bag for her. Fill the sock 2/3 full of regular rice...not instant. Tie a knot at the end and voila! a rice bag! Stick it in the microwave for about 2-3 minutes on high...stopping halfway to turn it over and squish it. Drape it on her dry neck. It will hold moist heat for about a half an hour and should feel very good to her. (Do not moisten this or you will have cooked rice! LOL There is moisture in the rice that it gives off. This can be used over and over again.)
If you are close to a Walgreens, they have something called a Bed Buddy that is like the rice bag. It is filled with beans, though. So, that's another option.
Also, try doing a gentle massage from the bottom of the skull up to the top of her head. The muscles are very tight there to be causing this pain. I used to have a massage therapist do this for me.
Call the pharmacy and tell them what she takes for medication and see if she can have Tylenol or ibuprofen to help cut through it. These may not help her but they do help me.
I hope some of this will help you and tell her I hope she is feeling much better soon.
