    Migraines are a tough one. There is no cute for them! I have suffered from them for YEARS.

    I can tell you that light has a HUGE impact on migraines. So if you have one, def try to stay in the dark or turn off your light in your office at work.
    Cheese ,onions, and red wines will trigger a migraine, too.

    I see a chiropractor for mine bi-weekly. You may want to look into it if you still see no relief.

    I find Excedrin Migraine works wonders!

      I hope your Migrane is better by now!! I get migraines something awful!! I am 2 prevention medications, topamax and diprivan... I take both of those daily, and then when I get a migraine, I take pain meds. When I am home and get a migraine, I take my pain meds, put ice on my head, take my nausea medication, and lay in a dark quiet room.... When I get a headache that isn't so bad, I take excedrin migraine, I love that stuff!!!

        Are you usually someone who suffer's from headaches and migrains? If your not maybe it is simply you are suffering from the stress of planning a wedding.

          I just thought of something else, my sister had a migraine for 4 days and she found out she had a sinus infection, maybe you can get that checked out...

          I have been suffering from headaches as early as I can remember. It just seems to be getting worse with age... like my jaw throbbing is something totally new to me! I know this isn't normal.... hence why I need to see the doc ASAP. It may be stress, I got AF 2 weeks early too.

          Shelley - I've had a sinus infection before and it was the worst pain I've ever been in. I'm hoping this isn't another one, that would be hell. But now that you bring that possibility up I've been very congested just in the morning. HMMM....

            Migraines are the absolute worst to deal with - I've suffered with them since I was 4 years old & my son has also.

            Melissa - if your jaw is bothering you too, it could be TMJ . . . causes a very painful headache just like a migraine. Definetely let the doctor know about the jaw pain as well.

            Hope you get to feeling better soon!!!

              My FMIL gets migraines fairly often and she has found that taking one Chlortrimeton (you can buy it OTC at the drugstore) when she starts to feel it coming on really helps. She puts it under her tongue to let it dissolve. Then she goes and lays down with a mask over her eyes. She may also take an advil too - not sure.

              Hope this helps. Feel better soon!

                One friend here at the office is pregnant and she suffers migrains, since she cant take any medicine for it she is using mint oil and rub it on the sides of the head ... and as I can see she gets much better even without rest....

                OMG that would suck. I'm crossing my fingers - I hope that doesn't happen to me.

                * on a side note: headache has been gone for 12 hours and I didn't take any meds.... thank goodness. i just hope it stays this way so i can enjoy the last day of the long weekend and not be a bum in bed.
