Don't know why but I started using hot compresses with my very first attach about 30 years ago. I run the water till it's too hot to touch and soak a washrag in it and squeeze it as dry as possible then place the washrag on my right temple. It won't stop the demon but makes it a little more bearable. You need to continually re-heat the washrag as above. Also breating in the steam from the hot water seems to help the sinus and once it breaks lose the headache seems to subside till gone. But, guess we've all tried everything with mixed results...hope this helps someone.
