I suffer for migraine attacks on and off. It has been like this for the past 5 years. Anyone else with the same problem? What do you do to calm yourself down in such situations? Medicines don’t help much…
It could be a parasite…I’ve watched too many episodes of Monsters Inside Me
No. Gratefully, It’s nothing because of a parasite
Oh okay, hmm a warm shower or bath?
It relaxes the muscles but the pain in my head remains the same.
Tried some advil?
Hopefully some of these will help?
I’ve been to the doctor.
But as I said, medicines don’t help much.
Every person has their own specific triggers of migraine. I wanted to know how they deal with it in their unique way… whether it could be of any help to me.
You’re very sweet
Thank you for being so kind
I get headaches from time to time, but have no experience with migraines. Do you drink a lot of caffeine? That’s sometimes a trigger or staring at a device screen for too long.
No. I don’t…
It usually happens when I don’t sleep much or have some kind of emotional disturbance…
And sometimes It just happens out of nowhere…
What do you do for your own headaches?
My migraine attacks are treatable most of the times. However, there are times when it gets out of hands and frl i can’t focus or do anything with my head spinning and throbbing like that. So, I sleep for two hours, mostly somewhere there is no light. I drink alot of water and do not skip meals (cause I skip alot of meals).
Sometimes taking a shower helps me alot. Other times drinking coffee reduces the pain. Idk but I heard that some stuff found in chocolate products cause migraines. I hope that’s helpful.
I’ve gotten migraines since I’m 15 years old. I’m 42 now. I get visual auras with them, which are extremely annoying.
They are often related to my hormonal cycle - usually happen the most during the week before my period.
I do take Ibuprofen to take the edge off. I drink water and caffeine.
Rest in a cool, dark room.
And peppermint always helps me. I always keep peppermint gum with me. Peppermint oil is nice to use on wrists and temples too.
Hope that helps. Feel better!
I drink lemonade with a bit of honey.
Go to bed, close the curtains, and put on some heavy metal at an almost subliminal volume. For some reason the low, bass beat calms my migraines.
I take some advil, that usually makes em go away for me anyways.
I suffer from migraines. I take a daily preventative (Venlafaxine), plus magnesium, riboflavin, COQ-10, and PEA. Sumatriptan as abortive when I feel them start. Also Botox injections every 3 months and trigger point Lidocaine injections every few weeks.
I used to think you can manage migraines just by, I dunno, hydration and dark room rest. I know better now.
