Can you remember the very first time you had an ache in your head? The most common aches in the body are in the head, and rightfully so, since it is right at the top of your body. Let me give a very brief introduction to my headache journey. The headaches i have had and still have occasionally, are attributive to common colds and flu, period pains, lack of sleep and stress. These are the popular kinds of headaches. At one time i thought a migraine and stress headache was the same, but apparently, a migraine headache could range from mild to severe and even lead people to A &E. I have probably had this one-sided kind of a headache a couple of times in my life, but only on the mild side. I call this journey exciting because whenever i had a headache i would just pop paracetamol or panadol in my mouth and then for the more stronger pains, Nurofen would suffice. When i started becoming more health conscious, i told myself “i am going to change medication” guess what i changed to? Ibuprofen!!
They are in the same category right. Very dumb move. And this time i was taking Ibuprofen for all aches. Anyway, i began to let diet play a part in my headache journey and also not forgetting the required amount of water and even much more a day. Slowly i went back to panadol and left the ibuprofen family for good. One important thing to take from this – Dehydration is one of the main causes of headaches and Water is, of course, a lifesaver to most physical conditions in the body.
