    Apart from the fact

    Apart from the fact that I have headaches, everything is OK.

    What's the best way to shorten this sentence?

    1 Apart from me having headches...
    2 Apart from I have headaches...
    3 Apart from that I have headaches...

    None of these are grammatical. You can write Other than having headaches, everything's okay. "Apart from" is all right but I find my version a bit more natural.
