I have suffered horrible tension headaches for the last 5 years. Although I have not found any cure to a tension headache, I do have some tips that might help. I have found relaxing with a cup of chamomile tea helps. It's not an instaneous relief, but it helps you to sit down and relax. Also I have tried drinking a bottle of gatorade and surprisingly it really does help. When I have a really bad headache, I go to bed early, put on a sleeping mask, and put ice on my neck and forehead. (If you know you are definitely having a tension headache then put ice on your neck! It relieves the stress in your whole head) If you don't have a sleeping mask, get one!! It helps me tremendously. I also go to a chiropractor regulary to get adjustments and massages. This helps a lot!
Try to eliminate stress (who am I kidding you can't eliminate it, but try to find some time for yourself)
From one headache sufferer to another, I wish you all the best in trying to get rid of it. Best of luck :)

Thanks for your advise. I am about to go try the ice, as warm and moist heat does not seem to be helping. Question: why cold instead of heat?
Thanks.

I don't have a medical reason why cold instead of hot, but I honestly think it's personal preference & it depends on what type of headache you have.

The cold water will constrict blood vessels which will help relieve the pain..
