I’m so sorry!
I get migraines too and they are unbelievably awful.
I find that ice packs help (I actually like putting the ice into Ziplock bags because then the bag, and the cold, is a bit flexible).
Also, my best migraine tip is a bit weird; rosemary oil. I can’t seem to find online exactly what it was I used to use, but it was rosemary oil that soaked into a sponge, which was in a jar. You opened the jar before bed every night and I found this really REALLY helped. I got to the point that I didn’t have to sleep with it open every night and just used it when I got auras or actually HAD a migraine. Now, I’m down to one or two a year.
If you have some rosemary in the house, try smelling it. My sensitivity to smell when I have a migraine is EXTREME, so this may be too much for you right now. But for the next time, definitely look into the oil.
I hope you feel better soon. 🙂

I get awful migraines (like almost passing out, vomming in pain) the only thing that helps me is to pop back some T3’s and go to bed.
Hope you feel better soon!

I’m so sorry. I get those nauseating, sensitive to light and sound and smell, can’t do anything but think about how much your head hurts type of migraines. Sleeping it off and drinking plenty of water is the only thing that’s ever worked for me.

thank you ladies! i had a cold rag on my head and that helped me enough that i got to sleep and woke up feeling much better. I will have to try the rosemary Arwenbride! And I’ll have to tell my mother about it too!!

Fiance gets hemiplegic migraines, during which everything he sees, hears, and tries to say is greatly distorted such that he literally cannot even function in any way. He always just goes to sleep for about six hours, which throws the day away, but at least then they’re gone. He’s found that eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches before going to sleep helps too, for some reason. I don’t know, sorry I couldn’t be of more help…hope your migraine’s gone soon.

a cold wet rag on the back of the neck and a hot compress on the forhead helps me. I get them so bad I am on 2 medications, though.

I’ve been getting a ton of those lately – it sucks. Is it the weather or what?

I think it’s the dryness in winter. I always associate dehydration with migraines for some reason.
