      Answer 1/8

      Sex can give you a headache.

      • You answered:
      • The Correct Answer:

      “Not tonight honey, I have a headache” is a classic line. But there’s less-known connection between sex and headaches. Some people get headaches duringsex. Head pain usually strikes during foreplay or right before orgasm. It can last a few minutes or as long as an hour. Experts blame pressure buildup in the head and neck muscles.

      Always see your doctor if you get a headache with any kind of exertion.

      Answer 2/8

      How can you prevent an ice cream brain freeze?

      • You answered:
      • The Correct Answer:

      Sugary ice-cold treats taste so good, you want to eat them fast. It might hurt, though. When you eat an icy-cold food that touches the roof of your mouth, the blood vessels in your head swell up, and that can cause sharp pain in your brain and behind your eyes. To avoid the pain, slow down, or warm it up in the front of your mouth, then swallow.

      Love coffee but get caffeine headaches? Quit cold turkey to stop them.

      • You answered:
      • The Correct Answer:

      If you drink five or more cups of java day and then stop, your head may start throbbing. If you decide to quit coffee, taper off of it. Even if you skip just one day, you might get a headache or migraine. There’s a chance occasional java drinkers can get a head throb, too.

      Hung over? What’s the best headache remedy?

      Answer 4/8

      Hung over? What’s the best headache remedy?

      • You answered:
      • The Correct Answer:

      Your brain hurts because it is dried up from alcohol. Get fluid -- water, a sports drink, chicken soup -- back into your body. The last thing you need is more booze. A Bloody Mary or mimosa (“hair of the dog”) will only make you more miserable. Don't take acetaminophen if you have been drinking. It can cause damage to your hard-working liver.

      If one of your parents has migraine headaches, there’s a 50% chance you might get them, too. If both do, your odds go up. A migraine is a bad headache that sometimes make you sensitive to light and can cause nausea and problems with vision.

      Question 7/8

      My dentist is the wrong expert to ask about my headaches.

      Answer 7/8

      My dentist is the wrong expert to ask about my headaches.

      • You answered:
      • The Correct Answer:

      There rarely may be a link between your choppers and your head pain. Grinding or clenching your teeth -- at night or during the day -- can cause muscle spasms and headaches. If this is the case, your dentist may give you a mouth guard to wear while you sleep to protect your teeth and to make your head feel better.
