Headache 101


Aspirin is an excellent painkiller and anti-inflammatory, but it also has many other household uses. Read about them here. While you're reading about it, I'm going to take a few of the little white pills....because I have a tension headache....in fact I've had it (in some form) since Sunday.

Bayer Aspirin says: "Tension headaches are experienced frequently at the temples, forehead and around the neck region by those affected. Attacks can last for a few minutes upwards to, in the worst case, several days, and are felt as pressuring, pushing, pulling pains. The pains are described as "a weight bearing down on the head", as "a tight, pinching headband" or as "a dull, empty feeling".

Yep - they're right! That's what I've got! So hopefully the "wonder drug" will work soon and then I can read all about those other uses.
