Drink Enough Water
It’s extremely important for most functions of your body that you drink enough water. Without hydration, your body essential goes into shock. When you’re mildly to moderately dehydrated, however, you may experience one or more of a variety of common symptoms, such as headaches, weakness, and you may even faint. Up your water intake to around 64 ounces every day to make sure this isn’t contributing to your need for headache relief.

When you’re fatigued on an ongoing basis, you may find yourself developing headaches. Do your best to get your sleep consistent and sufficient, so you can rule this factor out as we explore headache relief options for you.
Check Your Medicine
