  • Sadly, I would say you need to adhere to the list the doctor gave you. That said, there are natural, non-medicinal 'cures' for migraines that people use. One I have used (and it worked) was putting a cool cloth on the back of my neck and my hands in warm water. Maybe some other people know some more they can suggest.

  • That sounds almost like some sinus issues mixed with a migrane. Try taking some sinus meds and see if it helps. I would let your dr know whats going on bc it could also be related to your sugar or something. No matter what you should talk to your dr more about this... good-luck!
