Here's an idea that breaks the mold when it comes to previous thinking. Instead of going to bed with a headache, researchers say you may want intimacy because of your headache.
The study at the University of Munster in Germany found more than half of migraine sufferers who were intimate during their pain, had improved symptoms, and one in five were left with no pain at all!
Researchers believe sexual activity may trigger the release of endorphins, natural pain killers, that may work better than medication.
There's a footnote to this study, that for some reason, this passionate pain relief worked better among men with migraines than women. Go figure.
