I am 14wks pregnant and I have this god awful migraine that hasn't gone away. I've taken my prescribed medicine and still no relief. My ob hasn't called me back and I called the er and they said the wait is at least 4 hrs and the next nearest er is 2hrs away. Does anyone know of any other remedies I can try. I'm looking for any type of relief.

Peppermint oil, a little bit, rubbed behind your ears.

Yea I drank a glass of tea thinking it would help and my meds have caffeine in them.

Lavender works best for me. Just the smell - lotion, seeds, candle, whatever!

Ice pack or heating pad. (If you don't have a heating pad, a hot shower can sometimes help) Sleep.  Massage of upper back and shoulders. Have you eaten protein?  Sometimes if I go too long without protein I can start a migraine.
