13 Surprising Ways to Fight Headache Pain

More than 47 million Americans have experienced a severe or debilitating headache in the past three months. Migraines alone affect 9% of the U.S. population and costs $1 billion a year in direct medical expenses.

But if your headaches are persistent or other medications just aren't cutting it, here are some other approaches you can consider.
