The dreaded MIGRAINE!
June 19, 2007 11:45am CST
I'm on about hour 20 of a Migraine that started yesterday. I hate them. They used to be VERY rare for me. I even get the aura sometimes. But they are debillitating for me. I don't know why I get them, but I should have stayed home today. I am miserable. What do you do to help treat your migraine and make it go away? I've been sucking down acetaminophin and ibuprofen all day today. Sigh.

whoops I'm a lot of help forgot to mention my doctor has me on two types of medication I alternate. Maxalt is what I use when its bad and Topiramate is what I used to prevent the headaches. This is new meds for me and they seem to be working. Good luck.

I used to get them off and on. Have not had one is a while, knock on wood. I do drink more water now and know when I am beginning to get a headache, yes I get regular ones too, I take ibuprofin as soon as I can. The earlier the lesser the headache. Also despite all the stress I have now I am much more relaxed and take a bit better care of myself. I do not eat chocolate often and never drink coffee. Pop is also at a minimum and in the middle of alot of water. I hope you get over this soon and that you have very long intervals between this one and the next. Take care!
