This site has been a godsend. My mother is suffering from severe migraines after a fall...apparently it's called post traumatic migraines. I combined some of the remedies and though not completely removing the pain, the result means she doesn't have to take the pain medication. We're using menthol on the temples, upper lip and between the eyes (that is where it was centered today). I then take an ice pack wrap it in a towel and place it at the base of her neck. Then I take a cold washcloth put that over her eyes and forehead plus put a cold pack on top of that. It's the type of cold press that can be stretched tightly wound around her head.

Relief comes! Thank you!

Two nights ago I had a terrible migraine that I should have gone into the ER for, but I'm not insured right now due to graduating college, so the ER wasn't an option. I didn't use menthol, but I did the cold compress on the back of my neck and my forehead/eyes. It went away shortly after (of course it felt like 2 hours, but I'm sure it was more like 10-15 minutes.) Next time I'll try the menthol with this.
