When I get a headache, I usually end up hunting for my favorite meds, which seem to move around. They're never in the same place twice, depending on where I got the headache.
So I created a headache kit, which is working well so far. I had a bad one over the weekend and I grabbed it and kept it with me until I felt better.
Here's what's in it:
Excedrin Migraine (seems to be my wonder drug - it really works)
Sleep mask (I become sensitive to light if I have a migraine)
Generic "Headache Reliever"
Excedrin Tension Headache (this used to work for me, not so much anymore)
Eucalyptus & Spearmint spray - I spray it on my sleep mask
The Healing Garden Tangerinetherapy headache relief gel (I don't think it's around anymore, but it's available on ebay) - I rub it on my temples and it feels good.
And finally, not in the kit, but definitely a part of it:
My fabric beanbag compress that stays cold in the freezer for when I need it
Those are the items that have always helped me. Now they're in a convenient kit! I would love to hear if anyone else has suggestions.
