Coffee nap and Advil. Take some pills, drink a cup of strong coffee fast, immediately go into a dark conference room and nap for 30 mins, wake up and you'll feel better

Hydrate. Too much caffeine -> dehydration -> migraines.

I get migraines a lot. I take tylenol. My Dr also said that coq is supposed to help mitigate them, I'm very sporadic with taking it though

I've been getting them for years. Caffeine may be a cause, but it may be a solution. It just depends what your trigger is. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory and will relieve the pressure in the blood vessels causing the pain. Excedrin Tension has a high dose of caffeine which will open the blood vessels that are constricted. You have to find which works best for you. Either way, GS1 is correct in following it up with a nap and sleeping it off. If you light and sound sensitivity, get in a dark room with a cold pillow.

I’ve had four interviews in the past week, and I’ve noticed that HMs and recruiters aren’t as serious as they should be: 1. They got up in the middle of the interview to answer the door. 2. Biting their nails throughout the entire interview while working on something else. 3. Mentioned that I need to be available 24/7 and can only offer a title less than I currently am because they don’t have a high budget. Is there anything that I can do stop this? Maybe consider another industry?
