When you say you are looking for suggestions on how to get rid of the headache, are you looking for non pill solutions are do you take over the counter pills?
And secondly, where does your head hurt? I am, unfortunately, all too familiar with headaches. I used to get them almost daily. They were a result from stress, poor diet, and/or over exertion, to name a few causes. I am a migraine sufferer, too. Some weeks I would get 2 or 3! And some migraines would last for over 2 days! But since I've joined SP and have been eating well and exercising my headache frequency is way down! I used to take advil, and then I found migraine excedrin which is the only thing that'll touch a migraine (I have intense pain over my left eye and my vision can start to go). Also just extra strength excedrin helps me. But when I have a migraine sometimes the only thing that'll help is sleep (after throwing up from the pain)
Are you sure the headache is from eating clean? Do you normally drink caffeine and are now obstaining so it is a caffeine headache?
Or is it an over exertion headache?
I am guessing it is not hydration induced since you are probably drinking your water. But it probably can't hurt to drink some more.
I have found that a neck massage can also really help. Maybe take a soothing bath? Or some breathing exercises? Yoga?
I feel for you! I hope your headache goes away soon!!
