Apart from a cold compress, can anyone tell me if there is any remedy out there to relieve migraines?
I woke up with a hellish migraine this morning which lasted all day, I thought I was having a stroke or something, and to make it worse I had my 'booking in' appointment and 1st scan this morning so that was just over 3 hours in the hospital under bright lights and listening to screaming kiddies!
I can't take paracetamol as it makes me vomit so any remedies or advice you all might have would be much appreciated!
Have you tried alternating between hot and cold compress. It work great for severe sinus pain. Hot compress for 20 secs then cold for 20 secs? Worth a try.
You really should see your GP to see if there is something safe that can be prescribed.
Maltamammy, I get migraines as well and actually had one yesterday. I find if I just go bed with all the lights out and sleep or just close my eyes with a cold compress works the best.
I had a severe migrane on Tuesday ended up vomiting with the pain, I get them a few times a year and usually blast them with paracetamol and nurofen but couldn't do that this time!
As i said pain was so bad I ended up voimiting a couple of times so rang my doctor and he prescribed paramax which is an old migrane reliever, (safe to take during pregnancy) the relief of knowing that I can take this in future is worth anything, I have them in my handbag for emergencies. It does contain paracetamol though. I would definately go to your doctor and ask his advice as there is nothing worse and I know I would take anything if it would help! Migranes are the worst.
