I am 29, and been suffering with a headache for 4 years now. I have tried herbals (magnesium, riboflavin etc), acupuncture, oesteotherepy for posture - all no good

I play sport 3/4 times a weeks, and during that hour its the only time its gone

I have head a headache 99.9% days - it gets me down

I rarely take painkillers - but have to 3/4 a month when in social situation that I cannot deal with it

I want a non-invasive treatment, as dont want to use all the pills and even acupuncture I dont agree in using them

I am about to use the GammaCore - worth a try

Anyone else got any methods, or herbals or anything to help?

Please help? :-)

I know what you feel, I'm in the same situation as you. In my case I dont like to take pain killer med. I made a test what are the ways o atleast help myself from those headaches. (Same as you I am suffering with what do they call chronic tension headache). My usual routine just to stay calm down those headaches are ( 8 hrs + of sleep daily, water therapy of 500 ml / hr, more in fruits and veges as meals, stay out of stress and liquor, daily exercise especially my back,shoulders and neck and most of all prayers and meditation. Hope this will help you.

Do you know your triggers? It could be as simple as coffee or weather. Do you have a headache diary? Have you ever tried any pain med? If yes, which one? That usually gives of clue of what could be going on. For e.g. in my case, NSAID works like charm but none of the triptans do. That translates to the fact that my migraine is not really 'classical' migraine.
