... nothing that works. What can I do? When I get a migraine my only relief is to go to the emergency room and get a strong pain shot & then go home and go to bed & I'm finally able to lie down and go to sleep & usually when I get up my migraine is gone. I have yet been able to find any medication that I can take by mouth to get rid or ease my migraines. I get them so bad that it even hurts for me to lay my head down on the pillow. I've gotten them so bad that I have actually thought about ramming my head into the wall. I really don't think it could make it hurt any worse. At times it will start slow and take a few days until I'm crying & begging somebody to take me to the emergency room & other times I will be fine & all of a sudden it's like wam bam here I am & I'm in tears begging somebody to take me to the emergency room. Usually when I wind up at the emergency room and they give me a pain shot it works & other times depending on how severe it is they may have to give me a second shot before it will start to ease off. I starting having them when I was 19 yrs old & I'm now 58. I've been having them almost 40 years & I'm tired of having them. Sometimes I may only have 1-2 a month & and other times I may have 4-5 a month. Please any help that you can suggest will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance. Renee VanSickel
I tried so many also for 30 years. Nothing good works just causes me more migraines so I found out that if I take one Tylenol and one advil as soon as I feel a headache or get an aura I can nip ignore in the butt. Sometimes I lay down with an ice pack on my neck. Good results for me. Good luck.
I was in the same boat as you. I would be in the er at least once a month for migraines. About a year ago I went on depo, birth control. I have had about 2 migraines since and both I have been able to treat at home with naratriptan, which was prescribed to treat my migraines. My 21 year old daughter called me a few months ago suffering with severe migraines. I told her that mine were hormonal and she went on the pill which has helped her incredibly.
