Migraine. I've had an awful migraine since I woke up this morning. I've been soooo nauseus allllll freaking day :( I tried to go grocery shopping and felt like I was going to pass out. I took 2 extra strength excedrin and took a nap and felt better for like an hour, but its back. So give me your best remedies ladies!

I only use ibuprofen, max dose, it makes mine manageable.

 The only thing that ever helps me is a very very hot shower. I sit in the tub and let the water beat on my head and the back of my neck.

I hope it lets up for you soon! Migraines are evil.

I drink mt. dew or pickle juice. Sex also usually helps in a cool dark room but well its not always possible to use that remedy cuz either hubby isnt home, kids are here, or both.

I take a very hot shower, then I get out and crawl into bed and pass out. Lol. Nothing really helps, I just have to push through it most of the time, it sucks.

I have migraines often so I have a prescritpion.  
Vapo rub on the back of your neck.
Ice your neck and forehead (but not with the vapo rub)
Caffiene!  Mt Dew or coffee.
4 aleve or 4 motrin.
Hot or cold shower.
If you arent needed with the kids take a pm medicine to make you sleep it off.

Good luck...migraines are a bitch!

A prescription.  Nothing else works on a true migraine.  You just have to wait it out.
