I hate migraines!

I have an aura at the moment, soon it will be a migraine...ugh!

My migraines have changed to having a headache for a couple days prior to getting the stupid migraine.

As a migraine sufferer what have you found that helps?

I had to type this with one eye, because my vision in my right eye is pretty much void at the moment... :(

Caffeine.  I despise coffee, but I keep it in the house just for when I get migraines.

Excedrin migrain, they pulled it but I hear its back. But I take a tylenol and two advils. The tylenol helps with pain and the advil helps take away the pounding effect I get when I have a migraine. I also take a hot shower and use a heating pad on my neck.

UxorQuodMatris.

Dark, cold room and drinking a lot of water. I get them when I'm dehydrated.

Prescription meds!  I don't know why anyone suffers thru them.  Either they have no insurance or they really don't have a migraine.  I wouldn't survive without my meds!!

I have taken midol before for a migrain when I had nothing else. It did not make it go completely away but it helped and it has caffeine.

I love exedrin migraine too but when its real bad I have to take it every 2-3 hours even tho I shouldn't. Then I lay down with an ice pack and have to try to sleep it off. Mix it in with a little coke for the caffeine. I put aside my whole bottle of hydrocodone from after my baby and I save it for days I just cant knock it...its my last resort and it does wonders!
