Migraine Remedies?

jmendoza29jmendoza29 Posts: 21Registered Users
I've had a migraine since Wednesday. I slept 10-11 hours Wednesday night and it went away for a little while. Yesterday evening it came back a little stronger. I still feel like I haven't gotten any sleep and my head still hurt this morning.

Any help is appreciated.

    Oh, I am so sorry you're having a migraine. I get them sometimes, too, and the only thing that helps me is taking Aleve or Ibuprofen, and then laying down in a dark room, eyes closed, until it lets up. Looking at ANY type of light makes it worse. Hang in there, and hopefully it goes away. I've also heard from a lot of people that caffeine helps. Good luck, k??

    I second the Aleve and dark room. Also, heat on the back of your neck, some caffeine like coffee or tea, and a friend swears by pineapple juice. Good luck. I get migraines several times a month myself.

    I believe there's still an Excedrin migraine formula that comes w/ the caffeine already there. A friend took that for hers. Feel better!!

    I have had success with heat on the back of my head and neck. You can use either a heating pad or a hot water bottle. If you use the hot water bottle, don't fill it too full, or it will be uncomfortable to lie on.
