    Drink some fruit juice or gatorade, or eat a banana, to make sure your electrolytes are at a healthy level. And take an excedrin right away. http://caitlinpyle.hubpages.com/hub/Why … r-Exercise

    It has been a long time since I had a migraine.  Usually, I get the aura first, bright flashing sparkles in my eyes and I know it is coming. I try to calmly wait for the aura to pass in about 20 minutes and see if the headaches comes.  Then I lay down in a dark room and try not to throw up and just wait it out.

    I don't take meds because it happens maybe once every couple of years - thankfully.

    I know that there are prescription medication that you can take if your feel a migraine coming on however if the migraine hits that medication won't help.  If you suffer from migraine carry a small pill case with a form of over the counter migraine medicine in case it occurs while you are away from home. If you're home take the medicine then lay down in a dark room and wait for it to pass.
