Drink Gatorade to get rid of Headaches

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Drinking 2 glasses of Gatorade can relieve headache pain almost immediately, without the unpleasant side effects caused by traditional pain relievers.

I've heard that too! Has anyone tried it? I'd add it to my tip tester list, but I rarely get headaches.

When I get a migraine the only thing I want is a grade Gatorade (prefer Fierce Grape, but the Grape G2 will do). I actually crave that stuff when I have a headache.

Another tip - to prevent a hangover headache, drink a 32oz Gatorade before going to bed (or at least 20 oz, but I usually try the 32oz). It works for me after a night of "excess".

Lucky you! I'll try to remember to give it a shot the next time I get one!

Wow I will try it--I have had horrible headaches the past month, at least one or 2 a week that I have to just sleep off.

I knew some of the hangover headache was due to dehydration, never occurred to me that it could contribute to 'regular' ones. I'll have to get me some diet gatorade to keep around

According to my source (my mama) a lot of headaches are caused, triggered, or lengthened due to dehydration. It's amazing how many ailments water can cure. I've drunk gatorade or the like for headaches and indeed, it works.

Good tip, I don't often buy Gatorade but it sure is cheaper than a bottle of Tylenol would be worth the try!
