I had very bad head aches and TMJ pain, and took loads of aspirin for it. I knew it was not good, but the pain... Finally, after being Dx with MS in 1993, I sought alternatives to drugs - which were just not there for MS in those days. Amongst the therapies, was acupuncture, and the acupuncturist showed me how to do acupressure for my head aches. It stops the head ache within 30 seconds, no drugs. I have since used the method on dozens of people, and they are always amazed.
The point to press is in the web between thumb and index finger (there are actually 3 points there, but you will know when you have the right one) You will notice when you have a head ache, that it is "puffy", or congested there (the hand), and when you squeeze there (pinch between thumb and index finger of opposite hand), it is quite painful, however, after 10 seconds, or so, the pain starts to ease, and so does the head ache. Keep pressing until your head ache is gone. No drugs necessary.
