This obviously works for Charlie but it is important that you practise it as much as you can beforehand, not just when the headache is upon you.
I have practised self hypnosis for many years and have found that it has helped with every pain, including that of being moved around with a newly broken hip. A simple trigger, clicking my fingers, was all I needed to relax myself and reduce the pain by relaxing my leg muscles. Achieving that, in an instant, came from a lot of
time spent previously practising the technique.
The only thing it doesn't touch, for me, is ch, because the pain is too intense and comes on too quickly for me to achieve or keep any focus. However I concentrate on relaxing through the pain by slow, deep breathing rather than hyperventilating. Sometimes it helps.
Anything beats trying to throttle youself by pressure on the carotid artery just to get a few seconds relief. (Don't try this at home. Apart from the obvious reasons, when you release the pressure, it is like being hit by a train)
