Migraines and tension headaches can be prevented to a certain extent by reducing stress, getting enough sleep, drinking water, reducing your caffeine intake, and limiting your screen time.
Over-the-counter medication, such as ibuprofen, naproxen, or acetaminophen, can help relieve the pain, and prescription medication can help reduce the symptoms of illnesses.
Ice helps reduce inflammation, and heat can help relax tense muscles.
If your face pain worsens or doesn’t improve with treatment, seek medication attention.
