Migraines - what can you tell me to help me

Recommended Posts

I suffer migraines severally. I have stopped taking the preventative for the migraines, after so long it was making me worse. Today I take Imitrex nasal spray, pill form and injection form. Today I had a shot for the first time in a bit, I don’t like the shots but sometimes one or the other work . Migraines so bad today that I did do the shot. It makes me off for the entire day. I have been told physical mobility would help I am restricted for that as well. So they say you suffer from migraines you Just suffer from severe ones,’keep doing what I am doing. Hoping I can make some type of difference with food etc, I don’t know. Please I am all open to suggestions. 

Thank you-~B

Here are a few things that have helped me.  


(Enjoy A Relaxing Head Massage)
There is nothing like a relaxing massage to ease the pain associated with a migraine headache. Stress and tension are major trigger factors for a migraine headache.A long relaxing head massage using essential oils like p
atchouli or lavender can help to release pent-up stress and tension. This in turn can help to reduce the severity of a migraine attack.

.(Tie A Tight Headband)
This popular home remedy for migraine headaches has been around since ancient times. To relieve the throbbing, vice-like migraine headache, tie a tight headband around the head. Use a narrow strip of cloth to prepare the headband or you can even use an old tie or any other long, narrow piece of cloth.

.(Inhale Peppermint Oil)
You can easily procure pure peppermint oil from any store selling herbal products. Inhaling peppermint oil can help to control the dilation and constriction of blood vessels. Sometimes improper blood flow can trigger a migraine headache. When a person inhales peppermint oil, the blood vessels open up. Proper blood circulation can help to prevent migraine headaches.

.(Increase Vitamin B2 Intake)
Stock up on vitamin B2 supplements especially if you are susceptible to recurrent and violent migraine headaches. Taking higher doses of vitamin B2 or riboflavin can help to ease the intensity and length of a migraine attack. Sustained intake of vitamin B2 supplements can also help to reduce the frequency of migraine headaches.

.(Try A Cold Compress)
A soothing cold compress is known to relive a migraine headache. The exact effect of cold compress on a throbbing migraine remains ambiguous. But migraine sufferers who have tried this home remedy swear by its effectiveness. Dip a face towel in some cold water. Squeeze out the excess water and spread the towel over your forehead. Repeat this procedure a number of times till the intensity of pain decreases.

.(Drink Water)
Dehydration can trigger headaches, especially migraine headaches. Chronic dehydration can cause debilitating migraine headaches. Drink plenty of water to stop migraine attack.

.(Use Lavender Oil)
Soothing lavender oil can ease a migraine headache. You can either apply pure lavender oil on your temple (side of the head), or you can inhale lavender oil. For a more calming experience that can help to drive away a migraine headache, add two to three drops of pure lavender oil in a small bowl of warm water. As the aroma of pure lavender suffuses your immediate surroundings, you will notice a definite lessening of the pain associated with a migraine headache.

.(Apply Vinegar)
This is an unusual, nonetheless effective home remedy to combat a migraine headache. Dip a face towel in a bowl containing apple cider vinegar. Squeeze out the excess vinegar and press the face towel on those parts of your head which hurt the most. Repeat this process a couple of times. There will be a noticeable reduction in the intensity of migraine headaches.

.(Try A Cabbage Cold Compress)
This is a wonderful home remedy for migraine headaches. You can prepare a cabbage cold compress by placing a couple of fresh cabbage leaves in the freezer. After a couple of minutes remove the cabbage leaves from the freezer and place them on your forehead. Close your eyes and relax. The migraine headache will disappear magically.

Papa-Smurf Thank you so much for that valuable information. I am defiantly into my essential oils and have tried many remedies, sometimes due to the smells makes it worse for me to I have to be careful . I love peppermint and lavender , I use both of those and make a topical for pain. I didn't know that vitamin B2 , I will check in with my doctor and see if its something she can prescribe so I don't have to purchase it.
