Anyone have any home remedies for headaches or migraines?

I have read a lot about triggers and another common one is MSG, so I always make sure and request no MSG when we order chinese, etc. And cheese can be a trigger as well as alcohol.
I usually can get by using Excedrin, but I try to stay away from it if I can...have read some things about it that just don't sit well. But I did notice that Excedrin migraine is nothing more than Excedrin + caffeine, so now I usually try to have a diet coke or something first to see if that helps with the swelling of the blood vessels and then treat if needed.
Melissa, I might have to try the roll-on stuff though, it looks so cheesy though! Guess I'll have to apply it at work in the restroom so no one sees me!

As for the auras, nausea, sensitivities, etc. it doesn't do anything, but it does make the pounding headache calm down.
Check out this website for more migraine info - it's really really thorough and covers just about everything you could ever want to know about migraines.

I find it helpful to track my migraines as well in like a journal...I'll write down the date & time it started, everything I had to eat within the last 24 hours, what the weather was like, what I was doing when it started, etc.
It's really helped me to figure out what my triggers are and start avoiding them!

Thanks for that website Melissa. And that's a good tip on MSG although we haven't been eating out at all lately.
I got a doctor apointment for next Thursday...hopefully we can get something figured out.

I had to ask my friend that gets them all the time.
"The herb is feverfew, the medicine is maxalt. But with the feverfew I've been able to take care of them with excedrin migraine".
