  • It can also be food allergies, I used to get horrible migraines if I ate certain foods but until they tested me I had no ideas certain foods trigger migraines: red wine, grape juice, chocolate, sharp cheeses. You might get checked for that. You can use Execederin migraine, works really well for an OTC drug. If that doesn't cut it, see your dr. They have a lot of new stuff on the market now that works without narcotics. Tamadol is really effective. Have you tried laying down in a dark room and making everyone be really quite?

  • This is going to sound crazy, but, potatoes. Slice a raw potatoe and lay the slices on a towel that is folded, have someone help you get it around your head and we usually pin it in place. Just lie in a dark, quiet room with that on. Sounds crazy, but my family has been doing this for generations, then I saw it in a home remedies book. Hope you feel better soon.

  • Drink lots of water. I get horrible headaches also have been for 30 years. Could be food allergies could be smoke related. i know when my ex stopped smoking in the house I didn't have them as much. I also can't be around any perfumes or strong smells thus I only use All Free & Clear and very few scented candles. There's a lot to try. Good Luck Hope they get better soon. Experiment and resting sometimes is too much

  • My friend gets migraines and she said that drinking gatorade sometimes helps. When I get headaches I take excedrin and then soak in a very warm bath and if I still have it after that then I try sleeping in a cool, dark room.

  • I get really bad migraines and have several "tricks" that I rotate through until something helps. Excedrin migraine is good, but I atually found that Sudafed sinus headache can work better and drinking a diet coke. Also ice packs, Mentholatum under the nose, or a hot shower. There are also studies that show that masturbation can help.
