Maybe: If you feel your glasses are associated with causing the headaches then yes, remove them and get your refraction checked. If you already have a headache and your glasses are appropriate the it shouldn't make much difference whether you wear them or not. Sometimes though, heavy frames can exacerbate a headache.
Dr. Brijesh Chandwani

Probably not: Glasses are supposed to make your eyes/vision comfortable and reduce the strain on them. If not wearing glasses help your headache, consult an optometrist.

How can I motivate my child to wear glasses?

Make them fun: When we need to treat a child's vision with glasses, the process can often be made easier by making it fun. Try to show your child other children who wear glasses. Make games to comparing how good the vision is with and without lenses. Rewards for wearing and using the glasses can motivate. Also, if a child can do something with glasses v. Without he/she may wear them more.

Is it okay to take medication for a headache while fasting for blood tests?

Dr. Sidney Vinson

Yes: Few blood tests require fasting. Those that do would not be affected by the use of tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID type pain relievers such as ibuprofen.

Several possibilitie: First identifying triggers in the diet or lifestyle are important as that may abort them altogether. I also suggest chinese medicine and acupuncture as I have seen headaches disappear during treatment. There are also medications that can help a great deal when one starts.. So having several options is very helpful!
