I'm so sorry to hear that you have had your headache for 3 days now. Sometimes you never know if it was a detox or from a cold or even something else (i.e. stress, pinched nerve, reaction to something you are eating, etc.).
All I can recommend is to juice fast and rest and if it's detox it should subside real quick.
I don't know your current health status, but if you just started raw, and/or if you have health issues, a headache could be a symptom of something more serious, to which you may want to seek out medical help.
I have gone through long bouts of headaches and eventually I can figure out what was behind mine. Occasional detox (when I do a water fast). Wrong thyroid meds (this usually takes me months to figure out). Reaction to some foods, like night shades. Eventually you will be able to figure out what causes some of your headaches, but there will be times when you just never know.
I hope it isn't much longer until your headache subsides!!!!

Try magnesium or B-12 methylcobalamin.

I had a reaction to a hair dye last week with headaches so fasted for 3 days and then fruit for a couple of days and oh my god the headaches were debilitating and lasted about a week so was not sure if it was the dye still or rhe detox but I think it was detox and still I am weak and tired.
My husband said to take panadol but no way - i rode it out and they have gone just the weakness has stayed.
You can try:
- Essential Lavender oil on your temples
- feet in hot water and cold compress on your forehead (helps circulate blood)
- had massage - my husband gave me these which helped ease the pain for a while
- good foot reflexology massage
Really hope it goes away soon

I think it could be detox. I never ever get headaches these days and I've been detoxing since sunday and I had a bad headache last night so I think that's what it is for me but headaches can be caused by so many things. Make sure you're hydrated and stress free. That might help.

I'd like to thank all of you for your kind, encouraging words:). I think it might have to do with detoxing. I have been on the raw challenge since last Tuesday. The second day into eating all raw I had a slight headache, but not like right now.
Karen, I'll work on taking more B-12 and Magnesium.
Lavendar oil might help too.
Squidly, I hope you feel refreshed and more energetic soon!
Helen, thanks for the good advice.
Lissomllama, thank you too! I'll work drinking more water, taking more vitamins & minerals.. :)
I hope everyone is doing well!
