"How to stop a Migraine Headache with Ice Shock Treatment"

I got married when I was seventeen to a young man that was an abuser, I came from a family of love, peace and contentment. He loved to drink his alcohol and raise holy hell with me. The negative overtones, I couldn't get use to because it caused me to be tensed and upset most of the time. I wasn't use to living my life in a defensive mode all the time. All of these negative connotations caused me to start having severe headaches, which I learned later was migraine headaches.

All I know is my head never hurt me so bad, I had to go the doctor to get shots for the pain. I'm sure some of you can relate to the kind of pain, I'm talking about. I don't remember where I got the information about the ice therapy, but I started using this information to stop my head from pounding. I remembered the information about shock treatment with ice to help stop headache pain. I figured I didn't have a lot to lose by trying it, and it work the very first time I tried it.The instructions was to get some ice in a ice pack or a wet face towel and wrap it up. Make a ice compress out of it and put it on each side of your temple, for five minutes each. Then do the same treatment at the nape of the the neck on each side for five minutes each.

This should be done while reclining or lying down in a comfortable position. While your doing your ice compresses try to talk your self in into a calming down state, lose your worries and your cares. Do this little exercise for 30 minutes, saying a prayer, deep breathing and meditating at the time. Think about your headache pain is leaving and how good it feels not to be hurting. This little Ice shock treatment worked for me 90 % of the time, but you should n't let the pain get out of hand before you start trying to control it. I remember once having a migraine headache so bad, that it hurt to sit up and even worse to lie down; I was a miserable person.

No one should never let the pain get so bad that you can't stop it, so if you feel a big one coming on, get your ice compress and get in a comfortable position and start you shock treatment with your ice and see if you can stop your pain before it get uncontrollable.

      Creativeone59, migraines are the worst. I have had a few in my life but my son has had them on a regular basis all of his life. They started when he was around 6 or 7. By teenage years he was getting needled probably once a month. In adulthood after a severe accident at his work that left him unable to ever work again because of the medication he is on and the constant pain he suffers. Plus the breakdown of his marriage the stress causes him migraines daily. He is sometimes needled two or three times a week and it is so cruel just to see the agony that he endures. Thank you for this advice, i will give it a try for him.

      God bless you.

      I have suffered with dibilitating migraines since I was 17. I am now 42. My migraines come in cycles of 2 years and last for 30 days each time. Now that I am older it seems the pain is more intense and they come more than once a day now. However, I could never lay down with the intense pain i get. My migraines come so fast and so hard, normally lasting from 45 minutes to an hour at the longest. With the Imitrex 100mg I am taking, I can now stop going to the ER everytime I get them. I wish they would find a cure for these things. Thanks for sharing the "Shock" treatment with me, however, I could never have ice on my head during an attack. Thank you for sharing your story,,,, God Bless you

      You poor girl having had that at the age of 17 and migrane on top of it. My mother used to have them for five days solid with getting sick etc. It was horrible to see or to have this. Therefore my sympathy goes out to everyone who has that. Wishing you all the best and hope they have gone.

      I admit I got a little scared there with the title (shock treatment), but certainly got my attention. I get it now. I'm lucky to not suffer from these but my sister does. I'll let her know, hopefully will work for her too. Thanks for the info.

      Oh my, perfect timing, I suffer from migraines about once a month...... most recently it's escalated to vommitting all day. These last for 24 hours and then I'm fine. I have been relying on Excedrin Migraine... but I'm finding this is not helping either. On Sunday I took 3 in the course of 12 hours and it did not go away.... I have had several tests and Doc.'s can't figure out what's wrong. I despise taking medicine and always try the holistic alternative approach, thanks for the info I will certainly try it.

      You're welcome thank s for your comment and feedback. I hope they keep passing you up. I'm glad I don't really them anymore, and I think it's because I got rid of my headaches, when I got my divorce. Thanks for stopping by Putz. Godspeed. creativeone59
