THINGS I HAVE TRIED IN AN EFFORT TO GET RID OF THIS MIGRAINE

if you have a suggestion i would love it
  1. advil
    three.
  2. sudafed
    maybe it's sinus related?
  3. ice pack on my head
    refreshing, but no dice.
  4. attempting to sleep
    the sensation of a drill going into my temple is not setting the mood for sleep.
  5. a diet mountain dew
    basically the equivalent of battery acid, i know, but, desperate times.
  6. acupressure
    just pushing on damn near everything to see if there's any relief.
  7. took my earrings off
    does anyone else do this
  8. Toradol (ketorlac) - injections... Anti inflammatory that tends to work well for migraines. ((Sorry))

    But also Panadol/Tylenol or ibuprofen + codeine.

  11. I have chronic migraines and here's what works for me - sucking on a peppermint, elevate your feet so your knees are above your heart, put an ice pack on your forehead and a hot compress on the back of your neck. Also run a scalding hot bath and put your feet in the water.

  12. Also if you get them regularly I suggest getting prescription medicine for it. I have the generic brand of Midrin and I'm pretty sure it's black magic it works so well.

  13. The only thing that works for my migraines is a drug called Mersyndol which is a brand name for the combination of acetaminophen, codeine, and doxylamine.

  14. Maxalt, a prescription drug that used to be insanely expensive ($500 for 9 pills). Now available in generic. Added bonus: it also comes tab that melts in your mouth for faster absorption! Keep them at home, in purse, in office, in car. Highly recommend.
