How are headaches treated?
Headache treatments vary with their type, frequency and severity. Lifestyle modifications that may reduce frequency and severity of headaches include good stress management, adopting correct posture, getting enough sleep, avoiding excessive alcohol consumption, not smoking, and eating a healthy diet. Other treatment includes specific medication to relieve pain and prevent further episodes. For headaches that are caused by another underlying condition, treatment may require further consultation with a medical specialist, such as a neurologist, optometrist or an ear, nose and throat specialist.
