More Than Just A Coffee

Transient

Have a headache? Drink a coffee. Grandma's remedy of caffeine to treat headaches seems to work, even though the exact reason as to why is somewhat unclear. Some speculate that caffeine constricts the blood vessels which can decrease pain, regardless it has long been known as the cheapest, easiest and best tasting drug to treat a headache. The simple treatment of a coffee or two seems to work for many people, and allows you to skip the medicine for a more natural alternative. In fact, caffeine is often a major ingredient in over-the-counter medicine for headaches, and it is not uncommon to see caffeine injections documented as treatment for migraines in several medicine books - For a less severe headache a less severe dosage should be sufficient. So next time you have a headache, a good espresso should do the trick.
