  • ohh i feel for ya, i get migraines waaay to often..what works for me is putting an icepack on my head..its like it numbs the pain away...ohh i also usually have some coke, and a piece of chocolate too..(caffeine helps) good luck..and if ya feel like your gonna throw up, sometimes its better to just make yourself throw up, and you'll feel better.

  • Try boiling apple cider vinegar and breathing in the steam. I read that it works, but I've never done it. And, tv and the computer make it worse.

  • try using a cool, wet washcloth on your face. i usually have to do that and apply pressure in the eye region to help it go away. hope you feel better!

  • yeah i was always told to drink some coffee or soda when i had a headache because i guess the caffeine dilates your blood vessels making it less work for the blood to circulate.

  • take a really super hot bath for like ten minutes.. then take a quick cold shower...if u cant take a bath for obvious reasons microwave a hot rag and put it on your neck for ten minutes.. keeping heating up the rag for the most benefit then switch to cold.. cold is good to supress the blood vessels that are causing your pain and the hot is good to promote circulation.. so if u find a way to do cold and hot it will help the most.. good luck feel better

  • Excedrine Migraine or Excedrine Migrane Tension Headache works really well, but I also have to lay in a dark, quiet room after taking the pills because mine get pretty bad

  • nicky, go see your doctor and ask if you are a good canidate for Frova. If your migraine continues, you might want to go to the ER or you could wait it out. Some migraines can last 72 hours; others longer. But, if this isn't your first migraine, you might want to consult a doctor.
