What is the best way to get rid of a headache? Is there something other than medicine that could help? Are there foods to avoid?

In brief: Dehydration

is a common cuase of headaches.
Try drinking a couple glasses of water. If you regularly drink caffiene, it may be a caffine withdrawl head ache. Foods that contian high levels of alkaloids (chocolate, coffee, red wine) can sometimes trigger migraines. You should keep a food and headache diary to help determine any triggers you may have.
