Patients with recurrent headaches can ease their symptoms by drinking more water, a new study reports.
The randomised controlled trial recruited 102 patients from GP practices in the Netherlands between June 2005 and June 2006. Participants had at least two episodes of moderately intense headache or at least five mildly intense episodes per month, and a daily fluid intake of less than 2.5 litres.

The control group received written instructions on stress reduction and sleep improvement and the intervention group, in addition to this, had instructions to increase their daily water intake by 1.5 litres.
