    What is the best cure for a migraine?

    I've tried every OTC pain reliever and 3 prescriptions. I'm at my wits end and so tired of suffering!

    I FEEL UR PAIN...same here, got to the point where I just ignore it.  I try taking a shower and sleeping that's the only way I feel better. Even some days I sleep and wake up the same way or not longer after I wake up it comes right back at me!!!!!

    hello luvs2write, i used to suffer bouts of migraine which usually attack days before my monthly period, (caused by hormone fluctuation), when i'm hungry (caused by low sugar level or hypoglycemia), or when i'm stressed. i would take pain relievers, just like you but i was careful not to depend too much on them. i learned that if those mild analgesics don't work for you anymore, you need to take a stronger preparation, something i didn't want to happen to me. then one day, my husband told me to try virgin coconut oil based on a testimony he read about a woman who found this wonder oil effective for her headaches and pain. so, i started taking virgin coconut oil, 2 tbsps twice and day. i started doing this 5 years ago and since then, i no longer experience those excruciating migraine headaches. just bear with the taste of the oil, because the benefits far outweigh its unpleasant smell and taste. i wish you well and hope that you overcome those migraine headaches once and for all. Take care.

      Thank you! Me too. I started using it after reading some of the anecdotal evidence for Alzheimer's benefits, & thought it might just be generally good for me (paleo diet). I haven't had a migraine in recent memory. Low carb in the past but not wi

    Acupuncture can cure migraine. My wife had experienced many years of pains with her migraine until we had found the TCM doctor who used acupuncture on her and after 3 treatments, she is now free from migraine.

    Also it is best to avoid coffee as it has caffeine that can cause headache.

    I heard that drinking green tea sometimes helps migraines.  I have also heard that excercising is helpful as it helps open up your arteries and veins.  MIgraines are caused by the constricting of the veins so anything that wil discourage this from happening is important.  Staying away from food additives such as MSG etc. is another way to prevent migraines.

    I started going to a chiropractor, and the number of migraines have dramatically reduced.  Since going to see him about 9 months ago, I've only had 3 migraines, when I used to have 4-5 a month.  It's amazing. 

    Now, when one does hit, or I just get an annoying headache, I still take Exedrin Migraine, and then I put an ice pack on my forehead and an ice pack on the back of my neck/head and then take a nap.  Usually when I wake up, it's gone.
