Any tips on how to get rid of migraines fast?
I used to get horrible migraines. Usually on the weekends after a hard work week. One night I was literally biting my own hand trying to get some relief from the excruciating sharp pain in my head! It's a long story, but I ended up with high blood pressure and the doc put me on meds for that and the migraines went away with them.
I know that this will make some folks roll their eyes but that night I remembered my Grandmother always quoting a passage in the Bible about ask for anything in Jesus name and He would grant it. I was desperate so I did - and that night was the last migraine I ever had. I thought the blood pressure medicine was the answer, but several years later a doctor told me that Lotrel, the med I was on was not one given to migraine sufferers and sometimes made the headaches worse!
Also, I do get a mild one occasionally and take Zomig. It's a prescrption and works very fast. The instant you think you're getting a migraine, take a Zomig and within about twenty minutes it will be gone.
Excedrin Migraine also works if you take it right away. Also, aspirin and a coke (the sugar and the caffeine do the trick) but can really mess up your stomach.
I really sympathize with anyone who's ever had a migraine and hope at least one of these suggestions helps.
