  • (potential trigger warning)
    i’ve been getting loads of headaches recently due to stress. i have a friend whose mental health is really bad, and she feels like im the only person she can talk to. it’s really hard for me because i feel so much pressure keeping not only my own problems to myself, but hers too. but like i said, she feels like im the only person she can talk to so i dont want to tell her how hard it is for me, because im scared that if she doesnt feel like she can talk to me, she could do something like self-harm or worse (she has spoken about trying to overdose and has self-harmed in the past). we’re fourteen and she keeps beers behind her bed, and smokes with her sister.
    im not planning on telling her how i feel regarding this, but does anyone have any tips on how i could prevent stress-related headaches? i try to drink plenty of water and get a reasonable amount of sleep and stuff, but i get a headache most nights of the week.
    im also scared that going back to school in september could make it worse. like it could either take my mind off things or it could make me even more stressed.

    sorry to keep ranting, i just had to get my feelings out somehow, but like i said, does anyone have any tips? it would be really appreciated. thank so much

  • A man goes to his doctor because he’s been having headaches for the last 20 years.
    The doctor performs a thorough examination and tells him his diagnosis. “The only way to cure your headaches is castration.” The man is taken aback, but, because he has kids and it tired of the headaches, he decides to go through with the procedure. It works, and his headaches are gone for the first time in 20 years.

    He is ecstatic and decides to treat himself to some new things. He decides the first thing he’s going to buy is a suit. So, he goes to the finest men’s store in town and tells the tailor he wants a new suit. The tailor says he can help and that he’s pretty good at measuring people just by looking at them. He tells the guy that he looks like he wears a 42 Regular suit. The man remarks that the tailor was exactly right, and the suit fits perfectly. The tailor asks him if he’d considered getting new shoes. The man hadn’t, but decides to treat himself. The tailor looks at the man’s feet for a second and comes back with an 11-wide shoe. Again, a perfect fit.

    Finally, the tailor asks the man if he’d like anything else, perhaps some socks or underwear. Being as the man recently had surgery, he decided to get some new underwear. The tailor looks at him and says that he will go get some 38 underwear. The man laughs and says, “Ah, I’ve finally stumped you. I wear 34 underwear.” The tailor looks at him and reply’s, “No you don’t, if you wore 34 underwear, it would hold your testicles too close to your body, pinch the nerves, and give you headaches.”

  • Who else is watching and like is this suppose to work I will give a update if it work
    Edit: it’s worked amazing ur should definitely try it:)

  • This is a good one for sure I haven’t hD a headache in a couple years now since I added.. MSM crystals to my diet the clearer the better to and blue locking prescription or non-pre..glasses for TV and monitors/phone to this and good by headaches. Start slowly with msm as it is a detoxifier and may cause a minimal pain or a potential headache during the detox process. OPTI-MSM tm is best/value IMO… there are 3 brands that carry it amazing stuff will change your whole body for the better dogs and cats eat grass as they lack sulfur in their diet which they would get from a fresh kill. Health to all. https://youtu.be/L7BWh3L9tPM

  • I’ve been searching my play list for this video. My head was hurting so bad I couldn’t really see well. With migraines the tension in the back and neck make the migraine so horrid its unbearable. This video helps relax those tense muscles then my attention/brain goes towards relaxation which does help with the pain. As long as I catch it early enough. If it goes full blown, nothing helps but ice packs, blacked out room, send children to Siberia, phone ringer off and pain pills if you can keep them down.
    So I thank you for this wonderful video. When you say it may not work for some, its because it’s a full blown migraine. A full blown migraine any music or sound is a no no. I’ve suffered for 28 years. So people when you start to feel the tightness, and that first pain behind the 1 eye, put this on. Shut out the world for 20 minutes and just be. This will work and you get your (life) day back.

  • Is it just me that likes to sleep or is more comfortable in cold spaces and I mean cold cold it’s just so comfy to me but it’s summer and I hate it ��

  • I have migraines and I’ve just thought of researching on migraines and surprised by what I’m finding out. I have a question, what happens if I don’t have a specialized doc to follow up on me?
    Cause I don’t, and when it strikes I only take pain killers and antibiotics

  • Not sure why there’s so many weight loss comment ads on this video, but…
    All of the things he said about migraine apply except the hereditary part. I hope I don’t pass this onto my kids. I think only one of mine gets migraines.

  • Try stucking your feet in ice cold water it has helped me (SOMETIMES) I know every headache is different but to some it might help. Whos here in aug 2020?

  • Hello mystery person who is reading this. If you have a headache heres how i deal with it. I go outside for 30‐40 minutes. That sometimes works but sometimes it doesnt. Btw i dont walk i. just sit on a bench outside my house. Then i go to bed with some sort of noise like this one or some kind of white noise. Whatever you’re into. But the best way to calm your headache or atleast the way i do it is: find somewhere peacefull or if u cant get some headphones or earphones. Find a comfortable spot where ever that may be. Maybe your bed, a chair, where ever you feel comfortable. Play this sound or any other sound that makes you feel relaxed. Personaly i use this one. So then sit still or try to move your head very slowly beacase movements can make the headache worse. Then put down ur phone and relax. Talk to yourself or think about something and try to not think about the headache. I am writing this while doing everything of the above. Well maybe not the phone part xd. But hope this helped someone. Stay safe and good luck!

  • I had to walk over 12 km in under 5 hours yesterday, today i had a really long bike-tour…. now my big toe is blue, swollen and hurts like a b*tch.

  • Its August 16 today and I got a great deal on body shop products on Facebook Marketplace, so I decided to leave my house at 5pm and decided to wear a hoodie and jeans ( I’m insecure af) My dumbass missed the first two buses bc I couldn’t figure the fucking direction. When I was almost there I decided to get some flowers and a water bottle ( I don’t ever sweat, but I was dripping), kept wandering for 15 minutes bc they gave me the wrong address by mistake, finally found the house and got the stuff. My phone battery % was 10 by that time, I was walking back to the bus stop, I saw a guy with a boba iced tea, I decided to get one, wasted about 20 minutes, the bus passed right before my �� eyes. I waited for the next bus home for 30 minutes, without being on my phone. I’m finally home now and my head is exploding and it wasn’t even worth it, I wasted money instead of saving lol. Stay cool stay inside

  • Thank you so much for sharing! I get migraines too and I made a video about some of the products that I have used, just in case anyone is interested ❤️��

  • Ayurvedic products are very effective in the treatment of migraine. #PlanetAyurveda offers Pitta Balance Capsules and Medhya Churna which are very effective in the treatment of migraine.

  • the fact that this is one of the only things that helps my migraines go away is mind boggling and when i tell people about it they look at me like i’m crazy

  • I get headaches often and this helps unless its a sinus infection from allergies. You wouldn’t believe me but im allergic to almost everything except sea food, almonds, air, water, juice, and other stuff i cant remember it sucks to have all these allergies����

  • If you keep on listening to it in a routine it completely works. I have been listening to it for 3 weeks and my migrane attacks gone.

  • Good pose suggestions and tutorial, but best to watch this when you don’t have a migraine, because the background music choice isn’t the best for someone with a migraine.

  • When I used to exercise regularly and have my preventive and on-set attack medications my migraines lowered some with respect to intensity.
