Wow. 24 hours and no relief. It's 5 AM here and I'm about to go ancient Egypt on my skull to try and get some sleep. 😑

Ouch! So sorry for your pain.

Ibuprofen plus caffeine helps sometimes.

Very hot baths.

Repeat "this too will pass".

So sorry.

Thanks. It pretty much passed now. Got a few hours of sleep and that helped a lot.

I sympathise Fluent. I 've suffered from very bad migraines (inherited it from my mother) till my mid teens and then I slowly grew out of it. I still have a distorted vision during the attacks but pain is almost gone. It's more of a discomfort than a pain really.

Glad to hear, zahratustra. My mom also used to have them. She had a nasal surgery on her deviated septum many years back, and hasn't had a migraine since.

Ouch. For me the ONLY thing that works on headaches is aspirin.

I just had that surgery last year. I don't wish that recovery on anyone.

I also had awful migraines in the past and found that cutting out processed sugars and flours, drinking tons of water, and a regular schedule of hiking 3 times a week for at least 30 mins got rid of them completely. Also, cutting out caffeine completely. But YMMV

Mine can be triggered by allergies and barometric pressure sometimes, too. I don't eat a ton of processed sugars anymore. I'm mostly a stevia guy now. Can't cut out my caffeine, though.

You might want to look into Triptans if you haven't yet and if your migraine occurs somewhat frequently. Ibuprofen lost pretty much all of its effectiveness for me, and acetaminophen/aspirin only worked when taken at the very beginning of my migraine attacks. When I finally stumbled upon triptan-based medication it was like a miracle for me and it increased my quality of life by a lot.

Yes, definitely - triptan is the stuff of choice for most migraine people I know IRL. It didn't work for me but then again my 'migraine' turnd out to be paroxysmal hemicrania instead so (after five years of trial and error) Indomet did the trick.

I'll have to check that out then. The migraine has been on and off for the past few days. Currently on, unfortunately. Note to self - avoid strenuous physical activity when coming off a migraine!

Actually helped me this morning. Went for a swim and felt better afterwards.
