    I get relief, even from migraines, with sex.

    I've had terrible migraines on and off since I was a kid. They've put me down as long as three days, and it's hurt so bad that I can't sleep with a pillow under my head. Out of all the migraine pills I've been prescribed, Zomig works the best for me. With, of course, a dim room, a fan on low and no noise except that.

    ..I had a friend whom was txting me while i was driving to someone else's house...when..her txting started becoming "erratic" ..it became all mumble jumble...didn't make sense....I knew I had to get to hers (20mins away) asap..when I got there..both her two kids were sitting on the couch in their lounge with a very concerned look upon their faces...I asked them where mum was.... the youngest one said .."Mum has gone to sleep in the bedroom..she's not well Nick." ..Hwen you hear those words..uyou think the worst..so i calmly said to the kids.." It's okay now.. I'm here...you guys just sit in here i will go see how mum is ;)".....I quickily walk into her room where she is out cold lying on the floor....with the odd spurt of awakening in and out of consciouness...I rang the Ambulance..and got ahold of her Hubby...finally she came around.. and what it was..was a Severe attack of Migraine!..It honestly looked like a Stroke ...she's on good medication now...still drinks too much coffee, lol but.. at least she's still here.

    That's awful! I don't pass out, but sometimes before one I'll get these shiny, blurry things in my line of vision. It's hard to describe, but I really can't see! It's only happened once when I was driving home from work, thankfully I wasn't on the freeway and I called my son to come get me. Sometimes it's a prelude to a whopper migraine, and sometimes it goes away. My last one really did scare me, after I heard what happened to Bret Michaels.

    he had brain Aneurysm though, ..without warning they can go..BANG. ..Hows your diet? have ya tried changing it around abit
  • GirlyGirl™ wildernick 2010/05/12 03:12:25
    I've gone from vegetarian back again, no change. It doesn't change anything. I quit drinking coffee, now I have the occasional cup of tea. Still get them. I just remember what he said, though, about it feeling like he was being hit by a baseball bat in the back of the head. And that's what it feels like!
  • wildernick GirlyGirl™ 2010/05/12 03:47:28
    hmm..not alot of fun for sure, my friend kept her caffeine levels up..(Coke) ..since her new meds...no more need for it.

  • jade 2010/05/11 07:15:28 (edited)
    Hit yourself in another place the pain travels to there and you forget about your headache jks .Proberly the best way is "DRUGS" eg painkillers
  • wildernick jade 2010/05/11 07:17:15
    haha..pain travels in mysterious ways..
  • jade wildernick 2010/05/11 07:19:05
    yeah lol !! Though the only prob with that is then you have to hit yourself somewhere else in order to transfer the new pain elsewhere
  • wildernick jade 2010/05/11 07:22:20

  • wildernick Maggie 2010/05/11 07:07:59
    has she suffered any traumatic event recently....any other history ..e.g illness etc
  • Maggie wildernick 2010/05/11 07:10:28
    Stress, not Eating Well, Smoking maybe those have something to so with it.
  • wildernick Maggie 2010/05/11 07:14:30 (edited)
    okay stress sounds like the primary symptom..."quiet music" works quite well for stress...or..she could try this (It works)
    and...water..drinking 2 ltrs a day( Half Gall.)
  • Maggie wildernick 2010/05/20 19:27:40

    Just kidding. When I have a BAD headache, I usually take three or four Aspirins/Ibuprofens/Tylenols.
  • Yess 2010/05/11 01:37:49

    what can I say?
  • Lestat 2010/05/10 23:39:31
    If the headache is in the frontal potion of the head is is probably cause by sinus irritation or infection try using a warm compress between the eyes and just under the eyes directly above the cheek bones This should relieve the swelling of the sinus and cause your nose to run.
  • wildernick Lestat 2010/05/10 23:43:22
    thankyou :)
  • Ash-the-empress 2010/05/10 21:56:07
    If you have Excedrin migraine and a coke, everything is right no matter what world you live on
  • SA 2010/05/10 21:54:47
    Massage the temples and forehead, and apply heat.

    Uh...I have been waking up with really bad tension headaches lately. I have popped so many Advil, I feel like I've built a tolerance to it. Just yesterday it took 10 to get rid of my headache. There has got to be an easier solution!
  • wildernick RawRsaurus 2010/05/10 19:40:42
    tension headaches you "can" take alleviate away from by using some techniques to help focus your mind on relaxation....

    Apple juice 2 cups of 100% real apple juice works every time.

    Some of these other answers are ridiculous.

    Marijuana is more likely to cause headaches if smoked as smoking causes constriction in blood flow

    Sex? Come on - anything equivalent to exercise or orgasm would work then and it doesn't

    Any over the counter medicine has too many harmful side effects.

    Head on - worked a few times for me, but not always.
