      This may sound strange but I have found that I can relieve my migraine pain by limiting my oxygen intake. For example, cover your nose and mouth with a heavy blanket if lying down, or perhaps a scarf if you're up. Try to breathe at a normal rate, but you will actually be taking in less air because of the covering, and the pain goes away in a few minutes.
