Who is the patron saint of headaches?

You won't believe this, but allegedly the patron saint of headaches is St. Aspirinus, who was an early Neopolitan Bishop!

Some say aspirin was named as such by Beyer in his honour!

That'd make sence that apsirin would be named after a guy named St. Aspirinus.

I should tell me mom because she gets headaches all the time. I don't know that it will help her though. LoL.

Not as funny as Chris's question, but the Roman Catholic patron saint of headaches is St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582)

Some also say that Neopolitan Bishop's are the patron saints of ice cream.....

But if they did something as good as that, why do people spank them?  :D
