* Go for a run or do something aerobic.
These too things will widen the blood vessels and get blood flowing again. They work best though when you first feel the the symptoms coming on. If you are already hard-core into the headache, the caffeine may help, but the aerobics could be too painful.
Let us know how you are doing.
