Here’s the real deal the field cover up your headache simply disabling your brain’s ability to feel your headache. That’s why your headache coming back when the field where i’ll. If you broke your leg adjusted feel so that you don’t have to feel the pain. Pain would come back when the pill for all. If these drug actually treated the real cause of your headache and should your headache go away permanently. Yet they should but they don’t. The field only sweep your pain under the road.
