    Actually, the 1st time i got headache is when i was in 11 yrs old. but i didn't gone to hospital for checkup also and i used to control that one for almoast 7 yrs. but after that it was very hard to control, so i went to consiling and they concluded as Migrain. and they given me haevy dose medicine and that was finally controlling my headache, but while using those madicines, i was unable to control my temper, i was become very rude and scolding on everyone. and after 3 months i got some side effects becauser of that. and i concerned 1 homeotherapy docter, he told to stop the madicine and gave me some there madicines. i taken that for 2 months, but it was not controlling my headache. so, i stopped that also. Now from last 1 year i am not takin g any madicines, but i am getting a headache all the time that too daily. and after head bath, i cant control my headache, it will be worse.

    I am not familiar with the term head bath so I can't help you on that part but I suggest you go back to your doctor and try a different prevention medicine. It took 4 different medicines before I found the right medicine to help me with my headaches and that was when I was working with a neurologist on finding the right medicine. It sometimes takes a few tries to find the right medicine to prevent headaches for you but I would keep trying!

    Hope you find some headache relief soon!

    Fioricet works well. the only thing is if you take too much, you can get rebound h/aches.
