Migraine Relief

on Mar 10, 2016 @ 06:26 pm

Does anyone else get bad migraines? Like pounding head pain, vision spots and throwing up? How do you deal with/relieve it? Throwing up always helps relieve the pressure for me and takes away some of the head pain. After that I can usually sleep it off but that only works if I am home. The other day I got one while meeting a friend at Starbucks, ended up puking in the Starbucks bathroom and rushing to get home before the pain got too bad to drive!

I've got migraines the last 14 years. I find when I feel one coming on I take 2 extra strength ibuprofen and do neck and shoulder stretches my physiotherapist gave me. If that doesn't get rid of the pain, I take a migraine med called Axert, it almost always helps. It's a prescription. I also get great relief from Peppermint Halo oil from Sage. I dot it on my neck, shoulders, head, base of skull. Physiotherapy helped immensely. Also knowing your triggers really helps.

when I was younger I would be immobile when down with a migraine, they were the type that were sensitive to light, I remember unbearable pain and vomitting and wishing it'd be over. My doctor said I grew out of them, conveniently enough lol but I think the best tip I've got is to do be doing preventive measures on an ongoing basis as it is easier to manage it before it turns into a full blown migraine. In my experience I needed a prescription medication to provide relief when I'd be in the midst of the pain.
Hope you feel better :)

I haven't needed any prescription medication for them yet but if it continues I will be mentioning it to the doctor again. So far, I have only got these crazy ones at the beginning of both pregnancies. Midwive said that can happen to some women. I just got one the other day though, exact same symptoms and I'm not pregnant (well I better not be! Son is only 2 months). I wonder if I still have certain hormones left or it has something to do with breastfeeding.

I've been getting bad migraines in the last few years. I sometimes feels like my eyes might pop out because it hurts soo bad. The only thing that works for me is 1 extra strength tylenol migrains and 1 advil liquid gel taken at a the same time and repeat every 3 hours. I've tried prescription meds and nothing helped soo i started this and it makes it tolerable. Hope this helps.

I used to get horrible migraines that would last for days, medication rarely helped, I would just have to wait it out and try sleep as much as I could.

I actually cut out gluten from my diet and I don't get them anymore. I can get away with still eating small amounts of it, but no more migraines here!

It goes without saying, but medication. Aside from that if possible lie down in a dark room with an ice pack applied to the area.Relax and try to nap.

I will havto check out that tyleno, didn't realize they have one specified to migrains. Also, thinking of getting a gel eye mask so I can get it cold to help the pqin and also block out the light

things that work for me on Mar 14, 2016 @ 04:15 pm

Everyone is different but I have suffered from migraines for over 25 years and what works best for me is an ice pack on my head and neck. I also use some accupressure, with a trigger point being between the thumb and index finger. When all else fails, medication is the last resort but knocks me out so I try to avoid. Catching it early if possible, allows me to avoid the medication!

I have to avoid red wine as I find that almost always sends me into an attack! The only over the counter medicine that I find works is Dristan. I have tried all types of pain killers possible and have found that only Dristan meant for sinus relief helps for some reason!
