Re: Any MIGRAINE sufferers here? ....HELP!
Migraines are usually caused by food allergies (chocolate, herring, MSG, nitrites), or by a deficiency in potassium or magnesium, or dehydration or just plain stress. Learn to meditate to help control the stress, or find some other way to do it.

Electrolytes taken at early onset can frequently prevent them from coming on and usually it goes away within 30 minutes (if it is electrolyte related). I take Emer-Gen-C or some other electrolyte mix. Or you can take the juice of two grapefruit and that seems to work most of the time.

Get enough sleep, as sleep deprivation can cause them.

Stay hydrated, and if water is not staying in your body, then perhaps you need a little more sodium, (not table salt). Sodium is found in most vegetables and if you have to use salt, use natural sea salt, the unrefined stuff with all the minerals in it. Solar dried is best. Celtic or Lima or such is good.

The neck being out of alignment can cause them, because the occiput in the skull jams into an incorrect position. Feel up around the top of the neck and out to each side. If this is extremely tender, it is usually out of alignment. A good chiropractor can help that. Stress is usually what pulls the alignment out of correct position, or sleeping in an unnatural position.

I feel for you. Hope you get relief soon!

Re: Any MIGRAINE sufferers here? ....HELP!
2nd day with a migraine. I get them sporadically thru-out the year, but seems like they are especially persistent this time of the year. I am on Maxalt tablets and Imitrex shots (for the occasional cluster).

Just wanted to know what remedies some of you use for migraines.

I'm going to my "dark room" for awhile. I'll check back on thread later in the day.

Thanks.
 Quoting: Tullamore Dew

Vitamin D-3, 50,000 IU for 3-5 days until you feel better, than 5,000 IU/day to maintain your health.

If you get out in the sun for 10-15 min./day with 40% body exposure between 10 & 2, then you'll have your Vitamin D for the day.

I've been taking Vitamin D-3 for 13 months & my migraines have declinced dramatically.

Re: Any MIGRAINE sufferers here? ....HELP!
OH!!! Also Epsom Salt baths, really hot water! And ice packs on the head can really make a difference. The ice can reduce the swelling which is smashing your brain inside.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 271953



There are many types of migraines, and a hot bath could be even more debilitating to some who suffer from a specific type.

One is that there is too much blood flow to the brain, another is that there is not enough. Some have to do with dehydration, and others are caffeine related. Some are due to muscle tension in the shoulders/neck. All have to do with blood flow.

Try menthol on the temples, behind the ears and on the back of the neck. If you can pin point the pain, apply the menthol on scalp to that point. Drink lots of water. Stay away from sugar.

Beware that migraine medicines can be stroke inducing. I've stayed away from those even when my doctor prescribed them.

Excedrin Migraine works for me.

 Quoting: Tullamore Dew

I do the following regularly to avoid them : eat regularly, sleep regularly, avoid stress. But there are other causes you can't control. If you get them this time of year, could be allergies or pressure from the "April showers". Try taking Zyrtec so you're sinuses are not inflamed. For pressure, take sudafed or benadryl makes a really good allergy and sinus headache medicine that if taken early, can knock out a pressure headache. Start paying attention to the weather. You might find that your headaches are coming as fronts are moving in and out, responding to the changes in barometric pressure.

Yes menthol is great. Sometimes I'll boil some water, put some vicks in a bowl, pour boiling water over, lean over the bowl with a towel to catch the steam and breath in the steam. It will really sooth some irritated sinuses.

"I am on Maxalt tablets and Imitrex shots (for the occasional cluster)."

That's what I take, too. Most of the time that controls them, but two or three times a year it gets really bad.

If I don't feel relief within 30 min. I take a second maxalt. Thirty minutes and no relief? I'm at the ER. I go downhill pretty fast when I get them. Hits my upper right quandrant of my head... Get a shot of phenergan and toradol/demerol/or other and I go home to bed for about 18 hours. When I wake up it is usually gone.

Sorry, OP. Hope you get to feeling better.

hf That sucks! Has your doctor ever given you a prescription for phenergen? It works great for the nausea and like you said, knocks you out. Seems like it would be cheaper for them to just give you a prescription than going to the ER.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 284011



I have a prescription on hand, but it doesn't work unless I have something for pain. My blood pressure skyrockets when I get a migraine. They've given me prescriptions for pain in the past, but I always ended up at the ER anyway. My doc says it is better for someone else to be in control of the pain management - the pills take longer to work. If the shot isn't hitting it after twenty minutes, they can give me something else.

Once I made up a bucket of ice and water and stuck the top of my head in it. It felt so bad I should have called an ambulance. But didn't want to deal w/ all the noise and uproar.

I read recently that putting your feet in buckets of hot water will help. I don't know. I haven't tried it.
Personal responsibility - try it sometime. Quit blaming others for your bad choices. Consequences happen.

Re: Any MIGRAINE sufferers here? ....HELP!
start in the neck run up and over my head and end up feeling like someone is trying to remove my eye with a screwdriver.....and if i dont catch it soon enuff i get nausea


If they start in the neck usually tension headache


to ease the pain i cram my knuckles into my eyebrow forehead area and right above the bridge of my nose

If pain is above eyes and around nose then sinus pain, this time of year aggrivated by allergies.

exactly my problem
 Quoting: ~BriZz~


Migraie suffers are often asked if there is a family history, as it is thought to be genetic at this time by some. Also a common denominator is that most people with migraines usually get motion sickness easily, at all times. Also most females with migraines get them regularly with their periods and are triggered by certain foods/beverages such as wine.

Vomiting, nausia, seeing black or white flashes is common with a migraine.

Caffeine and a hot bath followed with a short nap often regresses a usual migrane attack.

Good luck

I have problems with migraines as well.

What I found that helps me is Benadryl.

Yep, good old Benadryl!! Take 2 of them and 2 Excedrin Migraine Reliefs and kick back in a dark room with no sound. Try to get some rest. An ice pack helps me as well.

If all else fails, go to the emergency room and ask for a shot of Benadryl. It'll knock you stupid in about 10 seconds, and 20 seconds later you won't feel a thing. Whenever I have to do this I usually end of telling the nurses lots of funny jokes and then I get taken home and pass out cold. When I wake up, I'm fine!

A little weed helps as well....

Dunno if this would work for everyone, but I started taking prenatal vitamins and the migraines have been almost non-existent. Maxalt usually takes care of them when they do happen...if not, ice water, something to eat (usually a bagel, can't stomach more than that), and throwing up (lowers blood pressure, but ew!)

It's current and about to occur seismic activity. It should be better tomorrow. If you have tummy problems with it, it's a volcano too.
