How do you handle migraines or headaches when you get them? I can tell this one is going to be bad because I'm already getting nausaus.

Take your left hand, and with your right hand, rub the indention in between your thumb and first finger, rub in circles - there's a nerve there that it's like accupuncture - it helps slow down my headaches, anyway, I don't like pills.

I take some medicine, hole up in my room and turn the lights off. I do have the tv on just because I have to stay awake if my husband is not home and the kids are. I was supposed to go to the doctor yesterday but something came up and I couldn't. So I'm going to have to make a new appt. and see what the doc says. Granted, it's a military doc so there is no telling what they would say.

I have migraine too:( and I always get headaches almost everyday. What I usually do is do something that can entertain me like talk to someone who can make me laugh, watch tv that can make me laugh, just basically do something that I enjoy. I found out that when I laugh more and happy my headaches gone:)+ This is weird but this one seem effective to me. If my headaches gets worse I take my 222. Also my doctor suggests me to take a deep breath...inhale...exhale...16 times:)+ My migraines are trigger more on motions. Get well soon!:)+
