People who suffer from migraine headaches could get some benefit by reaching for the aspirin.Researchers in Britain say in many cases people with the severe headaches don't even bother with the common pain remedy because they think it's a waste of time when a migraine hits.

Scientists say a single tablet of aspirin can bring temporary relief for migraines in about half of the cases.

Researchers caution that nothing works all the time for migraines for everyone.
