Ok so i need some good ideas on how to get rid of a migraine.
Ive been keeping it at a dull roar for the past 6 days. Im drinkin water like crazy. This morning i broke down and went to the ER. I was given imatrex and even that just dulled it but didnt fully get rid of it. Ive darkened my living roon, tried a shower as hot as u could tolerate, ice pack ibuprofen and tylonol have been my best friends. Are there any other remedies you use?

I pair tylenol with caffeine; it doesn't work on its own for me.

Peppermint oil behind your ears.

And chew on a small piece of ginger if there's nausea.

Goodys pain reliever powder. They make a night time one also. Imitrex doesn't work unless it is taken at the onset of the migraine.

I take Imitrex with ibuprofen, I get one every month the day before my period. I get the kind that hurts worse if I try to lay down or sleep.
