Sorry to hear about your headache problems. I don't get frequent headaches, so I'm lucky that way, but I do have a very reactive stomach, and can't take pain medicine (or antibiotics) easily.
My family doctor, who is very familiar with mysensitive stomach, said to only take Tylenol, which is the most gentle on stomachs. The way I handle pain is to tough it out.
I use ice for physical aches and pains, but headaches are different. I lie down and wait for them to pass.
If Tylenol upsets your stomach, you might find a prescription alternative from your doctor. I just avoid taking anything. It's not a great solution, but it's the only one I can handle.
Good luck finding a medication you can take!
