So I have a few things that seem to work, a couple prevention and a couple tricks that help me when I feel like I'm thisclose to death.

1. As I've read already, B12 everyday has helped over time to reduce the frequency of migraines. They make some that dissolve under your tongue that are great for when your stomach is spasming and will not digest anything.

2. Magnesium - I've read this here too, but I think it helps me for another reason. It makes me go #2 everyday - and a lot, cleans me right out (sorry for the TMI). I noticed if I forget to take it, and haven't gone #2 for a while, I get a very bad migraine. Not sure why, but also when I finally go, I can feel my migraine let up.

3. Tea and Honey. I worked at an office that only had tea and honey, no coffee or sugar in the building. So I switched to drinking that and within a month, I went from my usual 6 migraines/month to two/month.

4. When I do get a migraine, I put an ice pack on the back of my neck, and a heat pack (a heavy bean-type pack works best for pressure) over my forehead/eyes. I rub peppermint oil on my chest so I breath it in and that seems to make the nausea better.

Hope this helps, even if it's just one person for one day. Knowing there are so many people who go through the same crappy thing I do makes me feel better. These other suggestions have been great - I'll definitly try the hot/cold shower since that mix seems to work well for me.

How much B12 and Magnesium do you need to take daily to help alleviate migraines. This seems to be a common theme in most of the posts. I've just been diagnosed with migraines and if caught soon enough, Advil was helping...until last night. Now I know how truly debilitating they can be. I could not go to work today and still felt nauseous and headachy most of the day. I will definitely try the Excedrin Migraine too along with nausea medicine the doctor gave me.

I've had migraines for over 30 years. I get a few a week. I take meds to prevent them and meds for when I get them, however I am going to try what you suggest. feels like I've been waiting a lifetime for relief from migraine hell

I have heard B2 and B3; this is the first I have heard B12. I think I will check out the difference. I have suffered from migraines for 25 years, awaking with one in the a.m. which is apparently unusual... no aura. it usually starts with an ache on the left side of my neck. OTC products such as advil, exedrin..etc do not work for me. Tried perscribed low dosage blood pressure med which caused other (weird) side effects. I am happy to have found this website!!
