What's the best way to stop a migrane?
Or at least ease the pain?

Much pain is from muscles below is an example of what may help (based on headaches).
Begin with a couple swigs of molasses or a couple of bananas daily - magnesium (which regulates many things in the body) and potassium (a needed building block for muscles).
Drink at least 1/2 gallons of water per day. Running a body low on water is like running a car low on oil is the analogy the head of neurology at UCDavis told my husband about 10 years ago.

Now to the cause - muscles - your back, neck shoulders and head have tender spots. They are knots in the fibers of the muscles called trigger points. It makes the muscles tight which makes them press on nerves and other things causing the pain.

The cure - start with a professional massage, you will also want to go back over any place you can get to 6-12 times per session up to 6 times per day rubbing (or lightly scratching on your head) every where that is tender until the knots go away. The place where the skull connects to the spine press up under the edge of the skull (to get to those muscles).

For more information read The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Davies. It teaches what to do and where the pain comes from.

pop two tylenol and drink a strong cup of coffee...and don't call me in the morning.

I've been suffering from migraines for 6 years. I've been on every pill out there for it and I've found that prevent pills only make it worse.

I had to find out my perfect amount of sleep. too much or too little would cause a migraine.

Certain foods would trigger also.

I've also noticed if I get angry I get a migraine soon after.

I found that massaging my head only makes it worse. sure it feels great while being done but after the migraine almost doubles in pain.

I usually take a hot shower or bath to relax and take a nap.

However that doesn't work for everyone.

So vitamins is an alternative. I take multi vitamins when I feel the migraine coming on and it makes it a little better

I don't know if you take motrin- it works fast but it only covers the pain so when the motrin wears off if you still have a migraine it hits you really hard....

I hope this helps.

lying down, resting, dimming the lights, being in a cool place. Put a cold wet towel on your forhead. Try to go to sleep or take a nap, usually my headaches clear after some sleep.

Well if it is really bad, go to the ER and get a shot. Try taking Feverfew at the start of the pain, (i hear it works) Go into a dark room and sleep it off.

For me the question is usually worded differently.
I get asked a variation of this: "I know you can cure normal headaches, but can you do something with my migraine?"

I have done energy healing for almost all my life (since age 7, or so) and have found it takes about one minute to relieve an average headache, and seldom more than two for a migraine.

A migraine may sometimes need a minute or so more, but two is the initial limit, and a few minutes break must be interposed before the next minute is done.

This idea may sound strange to you, but before you decry it, note that failures are very few. The people who have come to me report a success rate of nearly 100% in having pain substantially reduced or, (and this applies in most cases, )eliminated completely.

You might look for someone who does Reiki, or Qi Os, which is very similar.

Please try "Headon" which you can get at the pharmacy. When my Mother first told me about it (basically the premise of this topical cream/medicine is just like putting "Chapstick" on your forehead, but believe it or not, it stops the headache) I was skeptical but figured that I would try just about anything versus taking the prescribed medicines from my Doctor. Imagine how pleased I was that it works. You can re-apply it as many times as you need to. "Headon" is found in the aspirin isle - I've gotten mine at Walgreens. "Headon" comes in Regular Strength, Sinus Strength, and Migraine Strength.

Have a lovely rest of the day.

When you feel it coming on, go to a dark quiet place. If you can't do that try breathing into a paper bag, or your cupped hand.

All I Hear Is Blah Blah Blah...
Cold (as cold as you can stand it) washcloth over the eyes, or a hot shower on the back of the neck. Stay in the dark, and preferably a quiet place. Talk to your doctor about getting Imitrex...It really does help, but with all drugs it has risks so you'll want to know all the facts first...

Good Luck

I am a migraine sufferer. I can usually tell if a migraine is coming by my vision. When a migraine is coming, I start to see wavy lines in my peripheral vision and halos around lights. At that point, I immediately take some aspirin. For me aspirin works better at PREVENTING a migraine.

Aspirin usually works, however, sometimes THE PAIN starts anyway. When I get a migraine I get pain, nausea, blurred vision. At that point, I take a combination of aspirin and Tylenol and lie down in a darkened room. After about 20-30 minutes I usually feel better. I have had migraines, however, that have lasted for 2-3 DAYS.

Time and rest is the best cure. It has to take it's course. Just lie down in bed, with all lights and sound off. You'll eventually overcome it.

I have had migraines since I was a teen-ager I am now 50! They got worse with age. I used to take fiornal for them but after awhile they cause rebound headaches and it's addicting. Topomax is a good med to take at night the Dr can give it in a low dose you take right before bed as a prevenative. I get migraines from the weather, smells,stress you name it!!. I can't use any of the Imitrx type med as I have high blood presssure.. Now I take pain medication if I have too, and when they are severe 12-36 hrs. My Doc gives me a pain shot of Demerol & Phenegran to break the cycle. Of course this can not not be done all the time as it is a heavy narcotic. I go from hot to cold on my head and just try to sleep and relax as much as possible.
