Oh, My Aching Head

5 years ago

I have a headache coming on. 

I can feel it right there, pressing behind my temples.  The tightness at the base of my skull, running down the back of my neck.

As the throbbing in my brain starts, so does the internal debate.  Do I take a prophylactic dose of Excedrin now?  Or do I wait to see how bad it's going to get before taking something?  Maybe drink some water and see if that helps ease it before things get too bad?
