Avoid chewing ice - after years of ice chewing i have 3 cracked molars that now need caps. very expensive ice. Get hot packs that you can microwave and try putting those on the back of your neck and on your forehead - it will increase the blood flow (which is probably why being upside down helped) if you are eating that many painkillers you are probably in a rebound pattern - once the pain killer wears off, the headache comes back with a vengence and you have to take more. Hydrate, heat packs, and lie down in a dark room. You really need to go see a neuro - one that deals with migraines / chronic H/A - they do have other things that will help you get off the pain / pill marry-go-round. good luck.View Thread
