Caffeine Perk

If you feel your head starts to hurt and pounding, you can reach for a pill or just pour yourself a cup of coffee which can help fight headaches by increasing dopamine, - a chemical that causes pleasurable sensations that counteract the pain.
According to Dr. Kaniecki, Director of the Headache Center at the University of Pittsburgh, caffeine also constricts swollen blood vessels in the brain associated with certain types of headaches such as migraine.
To benefit this, limit your usual intake of one strong cup of coffee per day; when a headache kicks in, a 2nd cup should make you feel better.
