The importance of excercise
carpetcrawler5 posted:
Excercise is important if you get headaches because it gets your blood circulating. But you have to limit it to things that don't make the pain worse. The two best types of excercise that won't make you feel worse are walking (not when it's hot, although I wear an ice wrap around my head if I have to be in the sun) and swimming.

The ice wrap is a strip of special polymer that doesn't leak which I soak in the sink until they puff up. Then I cut them into strips (they come in sheets) and wrap them in a bandana and freeze. I usually wear one around my neck and one around my head. It also helps my headaches even when I'm inside.
