It's been one of those days.
Ds playing up, slamming doors, running in and out, constantly up and down stairs and the miserable cow next door complaining (yet again!) about the noise he makes.
Now my head feels like the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is playing at full volume!
I've taken paracetomol and ibuprofen and got one of those cool sheets on my forehead but it still won't budge.
Anyone got any ideas on how to get rid of it?
This sounds a bit mad but try pressing/squeezing your thumbs (nail and pad) as hard as you can. You have to do one at a time, obviously. Try moving the coolpad to the back of your neck. Oh and get off the PC !
Gin is evil!, no alcohol in the house
Cool pad has been moved to the back of the neck,
Had a shower earlier, didn't help.
Water isn't helping either
Sleep is not going to happen for at least an hour. Ds does not give in easily. It's hard to sleep through repeated cries of 'Cat in the Hat' or 'Green Eggs and Ham'
Have noone to massage me
Exercise or piching skin?
Thanks all.Will report back later after I've tried them.
Ds still shouting the script of Cars at the Tv but the headache's going!
Only me and ds and he's really fussy about his bedtime routine. Hell I'm grateful that he sleeps!
The skin pinching and the cold press on the back of the neck seemed to work.
Spacepuppy-Thank you. You've just reminded me to pick up my prescriptions. I knew I forgot something.
