I took some Excedrin this morning and It didnt even touch it, then earlier I took some Tylenol and it didnt touch it either.. I have tried taking a nap and I could not go to sleep.. But it is Midnight and I cant sleep cause my head is hurting so bad.. So can anyone tell me what I can do to get rid of this headache.
You!

    I am a migraine suffer and Some days mine get like that. Did you try Excedrin migraine? I sometimes have to take 3 of those but take with food or a glass of milk. Rub your scalp like a massage that sometimes helps me too.

    I have heard that it helps to put an Ice pack on your head and get in a warm tub of water. It pulls the blood away from your head and relieves pressure.

    put an ice pack to the temple of the side the migraine is on, if that doesn't work, try a warm pack. I get them too! Hope this helps ya.

    Stay in the dark, make sure there are no sounds around you or have soft music on and relaxe as much as possible, it could be due to stress maybe. The more you painkillers the less effective they are...i found out the hard way! Goog luck and feel better soon!

    I'd say lay back and close your eyes.

    also - if it's bad enough that it makes you feel like you're going to throw up don't try to take meds to get rid of the nausea. Once my migraine was like that and I threw up and felt INSTANTLY better.
    it sounds unpleasant but it's better than hours of pain.

    I get them, too. My doctor wrote me out a script for a pain killer, that has a small dose of caffine. Sometimes it works and other times it doesn't. If you haven't tryed the Excedrin Migraine, please get some. That works better than my perscription.
    If you can, eat some peanutbutter and massage your temples. Hope you feel better soon.
    Blessed Be !

    If these are frequent, you should definitely be on a migraine med for them. I'm a chronic migraine sufferer, so ONLY a migraine med will work for me....for something over-the-counter, try Advil Migraine and see if that will help.
    Good luck to you.

    If you go jogg for a while and realse the endorfins in your head, this will get rid of the head achea.

    my daughter suffers with those, before they started treating hers with medication she would drink some coffee and take tylenol with the coffee. Lay in a dark room with a cold wash cloth on your forhead. if the tylenol doesn't work alternate with motrin or ibprofen, I am sorry that your head hurts so bad.

    well maybe this one will go away and not ever come back, I had a problem once with the most horrible headache anyone could imagine I ended up having to go to the emergency room because I couldn't take it anymore, it lasted for a week, they had to do a CT scan and mine turned out to be stress related. after the problem that I was dealing with was over the headache went away and hasn't been back.

    They keep me awake too but, if you take some and then lay down in the dark since you are already tired you should go right to sleep.

    Try moving a magnet over the area. I know it works on an injured knee, but I've never had a migraine to test it on.
