My husband used to get a lot of headaches, like almost daily. Our old chiropractor helped with it, though it took multiple visits. I don't know of helpful stuff when in the middle of them, though if heat may be part, then maybe dehydration is also an issue?

I used to landscape so I know what heat headaches are like... I also did get frequent headaches as a kid. I know it was because I didn't drink enough water. If he is working outside (or inside) in the heat, it could very well be dehydration. I would take at least a gallon of water with me to work, as well as drinking something with minerals and honey like an herb tea. I like nettle. Also, tell him to wear sunglasses if it is from the sun or glare on an overcast day. Long cool showers are nice, as are a wet rag on the head while working.

Now,he's a welder..has been doing it for years,so he's definitely in the heat
