I get them too.  I actually have one right now although I get to sleep in a minute because I work nights.  Nothing really does help.  Excedrin tension headache medicine helps me sometimes and caffeine can be a temporary fix.  But usually I just have to sleep and get through that day or two.

I get PMS-headaches, some worse than others. Sometimes OTC meds help or sometimes I just need to sleep it off.

Darn hormones…Undecided

Those are menstrual migraines  & they are AGONY.  I used to get them until my hormones went thru another major shift.  Knock on wood.

Have you talked to your doc about migraine meds?  Mine sometimes would drag on for 2 days.  I also found sleep to be the most reliable cure.

My doc told me these are genuine migraines & quite common.

I’m sorry, I read thru your post too quickly & didn’t realize you are being treated for migraines.

You have my sympathy–those menstrual migraines are terrible.

I did have these until I went off the BC. Now that I have been off for a few months, I still get a headache a day or two before hand, but ibruprofin actually touches these ones. Have you talked to your doc about these ones in particular?  Mine asked me to stop taking the BC when I told her about them. One of the hormones can make your headaches worse.
