  • Put one of those gel masks(you can put them in the freezer) over your eyes to block out the light and cool the face, then use bags of frozen peas. Put one on your neck, one on the back of your head and one on your forhead. It works well. Sometimes I also consume a small cup of very hot black coffee which works wonders, but it has to be black.

  • I have never had one but my mom gets them all the time. She goes for a jog and/or eats an apple. She said that is the best way she has found to be able to manage them. She has also found that sometimes, having caffeine helps as well but it doesn't work all the time. Good luck, I know they hurt.

  • try drinking a huge glass of water and a bit of caffeine(tea, coffee, soda). My doc recommended this as a lot of migraines are caused by dehydration and constriction of blood vessels in the brain/head..water rehydrate and caffeine opens up you blood vessels.

  • The only way mine will go away is if I take a nap in a really dark room. They are horrible and sleep seems to be all that helps mine.
