  • Try some foods, like chocolate, peanuts, peanut butter or coffee. Sorry, I get them too and I have to say Excedrin migraine works better than my prescription meds.

  • I chew caffeinated gum and drink a soda and it helps. It's like a quick shot of caffeine. Wonderful!
    I feel your pain, I get them a lot too.

  • The only thing that helped me when I used to get them was going to sleep for a nap. It hurt to put my head down, but if I could get to sleep then the headache would be less painful after the nap.

    Also, I had them bad when I was pregnant and often it would make me sick to my stomach. After getting sick they went away. But I couldn't make myself sick, it had to happen naturally. It is the only time in my life that I was glad to get the symptoms of being sick...I knew the headache would be going away afterwards. it was crazy.

  • Do you take a magnesium supplement every day?

    Most migraines are triggered by foods; try keeping a food diary. Typical triggers include nitrates, MSG, chocolate, nuts, vinegar, cheese

  • Nothing natural works for mine. I tried for a month to find something that worked. I finally couldn't take the pain anymore and got some prescription meds since Excedrin Migraine wasn't working for me either.
