Please provide some recommendations for headaches when there is Lyme. I read that aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil/Motrin) are not good for GI.

Does taking Magnesium help?
Thank you.

The only thing that helped my headaches was Excedrin. I had prescription stuff but it didn't help. For some reason the asprin, acetometaphen & caffeine in Excedrin helped.

If you take NAC away from any medications, it can help to detox any damage from over the counter pain meds. I'm not a doctor - so this is just from my studies.

There are other things you can do to support liver health. It's not a complete answer but if you do need to take meds - it can help. Headaches are no freakin' fun...

Sometimes they are hormonal & you may need to deal with that.

PS - magnesium didn't really help me for headaches. I take mag for "charlie horses' (cramps) in my leg when I'm sleeping.

Many of the things that support the liver can also help with pain relief.

I suggest starting with TURMERIC, though, and if you do okay with that and have a reasonably good gallbladder, you might step it up to CURCUMIN, a stronger version of turmeric.

and then you can read through various options here:

LIVER & KIDNEY SUPPORT & and several HERXHEIMER support links, too.

In this summer heat, be sure you HYDRATE in moderate amounts often. Not too much or too cold, though.

and be sure your minerals and electrolytes are in good shape. Diet, normally, can cover this. When you get caught off guard:
