If you're a chronic headache sufferer, then there's little you can do to make them stop without medical intervention. I suffered headaches and migraines for years, until finally it was discovered that I have a brain hemorrhage - if you suffer a lot, see a doctor.
Other than that, you need to figure out what your triggers are ... does caffeine help or make it worse? Do certain aromas set you off? How is your eyesight - do you need glasses? Are you drinking enough water daily? Aside from the obvious remedies like cool cloths, acupressure, and herbals, I find meditation especially effective for dealing with pain.

A couple things. To prevent them, always sleep on your back with your head faced torward the ceiling, its MUCH better, also make sure you gotta good pillow. And go buy icepacks, but dont waste your time on cheap ones, get GOOD ones.(: Have tea also, this is always relaxing.(: Also, get massages!! This helps SO MUCH! Eat protein also, you dont want low blood sugar. And sometimes taking warm baths can help. Sometimes exercising is exactly what you need too, however other times its the worst thing to do. Sooo yeah.(: Hope this helped.

Your welcome(: And my favorite brand is 'Yogi' tea, its delicious and easy to make..I don't think it really matters which one however. For headaches specifically I would think the muscle relaxing one would be best. My favorite is bedtime tea. It doesn't make you tired or anything, and its delicious.(: Sooo yeah, its pretty much your choice.(:
