A cold flannel or ice pack may help, or alternatively a hot wheat pack. Eye masks (containing blue gel), which are available from The Body Shop (Tel: 01903 731 500), can be cooled in the fridge or heated. Putting one hand on your forehead and the other behind the back of your skull can be soothing for headaches or use a bandage for a similar effect. Look for things that might be triggering the headaches such as mental activity (Pacing; Reading; Television and Radio), noise, Sleep disturbance, Over-Stimulation, stress or particular foods (commonly cheese and chocolate).
