I'm so sorry you're going through a migraine! Do you get them often?

A chiropractor (a kinesiologist, i.e., a magician) got rid of mine instantly by (gently) prodding a misaligned neck vertebrae into place. But maybe you've got the real sort of migraine. I don't blame you for crying---you poor thing. I hope you feel better. I wonder if it COULD be due to some sort of misalignment? I've got cute animals at mine; maybe they would cheer you up?

I'm so sorry!! I hope it goes away soon...you covered all my typical headache/sick fixes...well, except I yell sometimes too. Doubt that will help a headache though! Feel better soon!

About 10 years ago my friend gave me an eye cover thing filled with herbs. You put it in the microwave for about a minute and then put it on your eyes. Usually that and and Advil does it for me. But I don't get migraines. Had one once and it was tremendously painful....I feel terrible for those people who get them frequently!

Migraines are horrible. When I get them, there is usually nothing that can take them away. I just end up sitting in a dark room crying until it goes away.

I'm so sorry that you have a migraine, they are awful. I've only had one and it was the worst experience I have ever had...I went to the doctor and he gave me a shot and a pill and poof! It was gone!
I hope you feel better soon.

Oh Leeann, I am so sorry you have migraines! I have suffered with them for years. I would have daily migraines and cluster headache attacks. I finally went to see a Headache Specialist at the U. After trying everything, we finally found my wonder drug. It's called Seroquel. My headaches had gotten so bad I didn't know how I was going to survive. But within 3 days of starting it, they went away. They didn't just get better or not come as often... they WENT AWAY COMPLETELY. I guess there is a part of my brain that never shuts down. It's always thinking and when I sleep it keeps going. It causes me to have lucid dreams and I would always wake up tired and I wouldn't be able to sleep most of the time. But this helps me sleep, and shuts that part of my brain down so I can sleep and it prevents my headaches.

So thats my novel. If you want, I will give you the number to my specialist. They really do help. Life WITHOUT headaches is much better than live WITH headaches.

Sorry this post was so memememememe I just love Seroquel and wanted to share the love. :)

Seriously though, I hope you feel better REALLY soon.

this is going to sound gross but my friend who does not drink coffee, since it is against her religion (LDS) use to SWEAR by coffee enimas...i would rather go down for "the sin" and treat myself to the triple latte...lol..strictly for medicinal purposes, of course!

hope your migraine goes away!

Ug, I get Migranes too. Sometimes, it helps if I eat protein and drink lots of water. Sometimes it also helps if I go to my bed, sit on my knees, and push my head down into the bed, with my butt up in the air, and push my hands onto the of my head, to give just slight pressure... sometimes, that helps. Sometimes, I just puke and stay in bed all day whining it won't go away! So... ya... migranes suck.

I hope you feel better soon!!

Im sorry you have a migraine! :( I get them too. Frovatriptan and a 12 hour nap??? Works great if you've got the 12 hours.

Sassy Lucy said...

Ouch, migraine gone? I get them too, and even prescription meds didn't help all of the time. Hope it is better. I am visiting late, but hope you'll still drop by for my T13

I'm sure people have suggested it already, but if the condition doesn't improve you should see your doctor again.

If you'd like, I will draw a picture of pressure points that relieve my headaches and migraines. Some on my forehead, some on my hands, and some on my back. You just push them for a minute or so each and rotate through all the spots til the pain is gone.
