migraines

  1. migraines


    anyone have any idea what one could take for migraine headaches


  2. I get maybe one migraine or so a year. They destroy me. Narrowed vision. Light sensitivity. Slurred speech. I have doctor prescribed migraine meds.

  3. Migraines are something I've only had for a couple years, but at the slightest hint of one, I take feverfew (about 1g per hour, consisting of dried portions of all parts of the plant) and butterbur extract (1 cap per hour). 9 times out of 10 that will stop it dead in its tracks. Also the homemade stack of aspirin, caffeine, and acetaminophen for the pain.

  4. Agreed.Feverfew with butterbur works well for me.

  5. B2/B6 Sublingual complex along with magnesium and sleep/aleve.

  6. For several years I had a migraine problem and there was NOTHING I could take that would even touch them. I maybe have 3 a year now.

    What changed was that I identified what was triggering them and for me it was: 1. Fluctuations in my blood sugar 2. Lack of good sleep and rest 3. Being in sunshine without polarized sunglasses.

    I took medicine for them for a while but it did not help at all. I started eating every 2 or 3 hours and making sure that I never allowed myself to get hungry. I make sure that I always have polarized sunglassed with me and I wear them even if it is sorta cloudy. Making these changes have made a world of difference.....man, I do not miss migraines....for me, they are the worst! They hurt worse than kidney stones.

  7. I've been getting migraines since I was 5. By my teens, it would get so bad, I would have to pop the equivalent of 3200mg of Rx ibuprofen just to get a handle on them. Then I learned if I kept that up I'd destroy my stomach lining and my liver... Now, i just take 2 ibuprofen (200mg each), 2 acetaminophen (500mg each) and wash it down with a pepsi, (or you could prolly take a caffeine tab if you don't want all the extra junk in the soda). I normally feel fine in an hour.
