Migraines Home Remedy Comments

1 Comment for the Migraines Home Remedy


I am 27 years old, and have been suffering from migraines since I was 12. As migraine sufferers, we all know to stay away from triggers such as hotdogs (because of the sodium), red wine, ect. and to stay hydrated and stress free, but we also all know that some of these things are not completely avoidable (like stress! lol), but Id like to share a few things that work for me. One thing in particular is Xanax (or any kind of acute anxiety medication). Im not implying that you go to your MD and ask him/her to write you a script, but if you are a migraine sufferer and also suffer from anxiety, try to take one of your anxiety pills for your migraine. I dont know why, but it works, and if nothing else, it will at the very least help you fall asleep. Also, some people use heat, and others use cold. I prefer MOIST heat. I tried a few things; hot washcloth, putting a wet washcloth in the microwave, ect., but it never seemed to stay hot enough long enough. So what I do is wet a washcloth and put it on my forehead and over my eyes, then I use a heating pad or a hot water bottle (if anyone even OWNS one of those anymore lol) and put that over it. You still get the moisture from the damp washcloth, and the heating pad or hot water bottle stays hot and gives you the heat. We also all know that sleep and hydration always help, but a few other things Id like to share is when you feel a headache turning into a migraine (we all know the difference and can tell that turning point) try a cold glass of something caffeinated (like a regular soda- not diet) and something else sweet (like a candy bar). Again, I dont know why, but it works! Lastly, sometimes when the weather is changing (like a cold front moving through or allergy season) I take a sinus or allergy medicine with my migraine medicine (something like sudafed or benadryl or dayquil-something along those lines). This seems to help because sometimes its congestion that you cant even feel that is giving you the pressure and thus causing the migraine. I know this was a whole lot of info, but I hope it helps someone out there. To all- be well. :)
