I've had migraine headaches since the age of ten. I've tried everything from imitrex to maxalt and nothing worked. Two years ago I was given Naproxen for my back pains and I came to realize that it also worked for my migraines. What do you all use to ease the pain?

I get migraines every couple of months. I'm sorry to hear that imitrex doesn't work for you as it works wonders for me. I'm glad that you found something that does help though.

I have migrain too. So far I just try to relax and lie down when the migraine attacks me. A couple of days later it will cure automatically. But I would also like to know how to get rid of it totally. It was really painful.

Hi Misste, I am again disturbing you by suggestion. You will not beleive it as you are a foreigner, you people belive in only science. You please again contact at www.divyayoga.com (India) with Swami Ramdevji, who is working here a lot for poorer seak people. Crores of ill people have been cured by "Pranayama". His treatment is based on scientif reserch. MBBS Doctors check their patient at Camp itself to know the reality. Now even Doctors have started suggesting "Pranayama" to their patient. Because it involves no money. We have just to breath rhythamically daily for few minutes. Cure starts from the day one. Even if you pay me -1% attention, it does not matter for me. My only aim is to get you rid from illness. Please dear Misste, belive me, I am an Indian, telling you 100% truth. Just you contact them, or visit at site mentioned above. You will result sure. Even you can contact me over e-mail also tpramodkumar@yahoo.com.au. I will tell you in detail because I do it daily in morning hour and I am 100% fit. Beleave me, beleave me & beleave me..... please ..... keeping your scientific mindset aside...ok.

I had migrains before when i was around 13 years old. It was chronic migraine. What I did was to drink lots of water, sleep well, avoid sun as much as possible, relax when tired, and take healthy foods. I avoided to much pills cause these will hurt the kidneys. Hope that helps
