How To Help Relieve a Headache?
There are a few things you can do to help relieve headache pain. First, try taking over-the-counter pain medication like ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or aspirin. Applying heat or ice to areas in pain can also help reduce pain. In case your headache is due to dehydration, we recommend drinking a lot of water or a drink high in electrolytes. A head massage can also help reduce any pain you experience. These are all short-term solutions to help with headaches.
If you want a long-term solution, you need to figure out the initial cause of your headaches. Once you receive a diagnosis, you can receive the recommended treatment to prevent headaches. Your treatment might be as simple as drinking more water, stop drinking alcohol, or switching your birth control pills.
If you suspect that your headaches have anything to do with sleep apnea or snoring, we can help. At Advanced Dental Sleep Treatment Center in Omaha, NE, one of our sleep dentists can screen you for sleep apnea and refer you to a home sleep testing service where you will receive a sleep apnea diagnosis from a physician. Then, we can provide you with a comfortable and effective sleep apnea treatment that puts your frequent headaches to bed for good.
