  jIwuQ 
  I have a headache. TKD

Sour tea seems to be a traditional Klingon cure-all:
 
  vaj Dargh wIb DatlhutlhnIS. Hoch vor Dargh wIb. 
  Then you need to drink sour tea. Sour tea cures everything. CK

although humans may prefer aspirin, which Klingons call {nuch Hergh} "coward's medicine".  Cf. 

  'oy' DaSIQjaj 
  May you endure the pain! PK

Related vocabulary:

'oy' 			ache, hurt, be sore (v)
'uH 			have a hangover (v)
rop  			be sick, be ill(v)

'oy'  		ache, pain, sore (n)
nuch Hergh 	aspirin (n)
Dargh wIb		sour tea (n)
