Headaches = evil

I get headaches quite often. Actually, I can't remember a week going by without me getting a headache since I was a kid. Since I've had them so often, I can generally ignore them without too much trouble. But the trouble is when it's a severe enough one that I can't just ignore it. The ones that I can't ignore are worse than being hit in the head with a sword - and yes, I can say that from experience.
The other problem is that over-the-counter painkillers don't work on me, and haven't for several years. See, when I was younger, my parents would jump on me to take a painkiller if I so much as thought I felt a headache coming on. After a few years, this led me to gaining a tolerance that hasn't worn off.
It's a bit of a problem. I can't take painkillers because they don't do anything, and I'm not about to get prescription painkillers for something I can just sleep off. Admittedly the worst of these headaches keep me awake, but I do always get to sleep eventually. Oh well. C'est la vie.
