In brief: Take a nap can help!
For the "worst headache in the world" see someone right away as that could be a serious problem. And lots of headaches or really bad ones need some evaluation.
Otherwise here are some suggestions: allowing yourself to close your eyes in a quiet space can help; a botanical called feverfew has a role for migraines although evidence is less now;acupuncture;neck traction or massage;manual medicine/omt.
