Everybody is so different in what helps. I have found that taking a daily beta blocker works for me. A beta blocker will do nothing for the pain in progress, it is taken daily to prevent the headaches. It can take several months to work. Imitrex has a good track record for true migraine pain. It never fully worked for mine because I would get not only migraine but muscle spasms too. Chiropractic can help if you have cervical problems that lead to migraine pain. Some people find taking antidepressants help. Some find it is food that triggers them so a food diary can help with that. Write down what you eat every day and look for patterns. If you use pain medication, you need to take it as soon as you know the migraine is coming on. Some pain relievers cause rebound headaches so try to use these analgesics sparingly. There is truly no easy fix. It takes a lot of trial and error to see what works best in your case. There is a lot of good info online if you look for it.
Hello jenniferS31. It would or might depend on ones body chemistry. Over the years, coffee has worked in my favor. Perhaps once per year, I have a severe headache, but not what I would consider to be a migraine. And throughout up untill my middle age years, I had severe, migraine. Regards pledge
I would really need more information about your migraines. How often are they? How long have you had them? How severe are your migraines? Do they cause vomiting sometimes? What have you tried so far? Do you have any neck or shoulder stiffness? I know a great deal about many treatments for migraines, but need more information to help you.
