Any miracle cures for Migraine?

I have tried lots of different things with no success. Just on the off chance that anyone has any ideas?

I am on Pizotifen and Nortriptyline

I was recently prescribed Immigran, which did nothing for me but my mum swears by them. However, I've found that if I take a couple of Syndol as soon as I start getting flashy lights, then they really help with the pain for me. My sister gets bad migraines and she was the one that recommended them to me as they seem to ease the pain a lot for her too. They're over the counter tablets.

Not really - those are the meds that help the most.
I can only suggest that if your migraines are pre-menstrual then magnesium citrate helps.
I also found that regular acupuncture lessened the severity of mine, when they were really awfully bad.

I agree as soon as you feel the presymptoms, take syndol and have fluids, works for me if I catch it quickly enough.

Migramax is one to give a go, found it helped for the times Immigran didnt
#5
Amitriptyline is what the doc gave me when i had them she said it was an anti depressant but used for migraines it worked for me x
#6
just been diagnosed and am on amitriptyline. upto 20mg at nights for next few months. so far a lot less headaches but do get them here and there still. neverthelss am so much better :)
#7
Check food allergies- wheat and milk give me terrible migraines.
#8
migraleve or tesco own brand tablets work for me £1.80 a box contains ibuprofen and liseene i think seem to work for me, if you can catch it early enough just ibuprofen do sometimes work, hope this helps
#9
they also tried me on Sumatriptan which is also ok just be carefull and follow the docs orders x
#10
Amitriptaline completely freaked me out!!
#11
the usual trigger foods are chocolate, nuts, cheeses, bananas i think
#12

Syndol are good but make you sleepy, take broken in half to get them to work more quickly. Drink lots of water.Kool n sooth migraine strips or pound shop equivalent used in addition help. Put a Microwave heat pad on the back of the neck. Sprinkle lavender oil on pillow will help you to relax and sleep.Find your triggers for getting migraine in the first place if possible.

Migraines are hideous, maybe go and see your GP again and ask to be referred to a specialist who can give you more personalised treatment and up to date drugs.
I hope it eases up soon if you have one now.
All I can suggest is a cool dark room and clean sheets and PJs, no strong smells so remove any candles on your bedside table etc.

This.

I used to get really bad migraines, and after a spell of having them pretty much constantly for a couple of weeks, I went to my doctor. He told me to stop being a spaz and fearing that I had brain cancer, and to just stop eating my then-current diet of chocolate raisins and pizzas, and to curtail my intake of tea and coffee. I did so, and within about a week, the chemicals and shizzle had tamed to the point that I went months without another migraine. Definitely, do some work on your diet.

Syndol as said above at the first signs or if your waking up with one as I do take two before bed as they can make you sleepy aswell .
#18
Have lots of sex
Or could be vision related
Or something with your brain
Get it checked by a doc
#19
I had lots of migraines,very bad ones where i would be sick and had to go to bed...
found out it was chocolate...stopped eating it and have very few rare migranes now.

I should have said. I have migraine associated vertigo so dont get migraine just vertigo. Basically I am being treated for Migraine. My own Neurologist was totally unsympathetic and told me there was nothing he could do, so I paid privately to see a balance specialist. Thankfully I am better just have bad days rather than bad months!

A taxi driver told me the other night to bandage a piece of ice between my thumb and index finger. He swears it works and everyone he told to try it said it worked. Someone else told me to go for craniopothy so I was just wondering if anyone had any similar advice?

I have been on a strict migraine diet since August, have worked out my triggers: Caffeine,Fluorescent lights and my period which is the worst one of all.I am also getting up the same day and going to bed same time

Hallucinations, freezing cold, curled up in terror and then , thankfully, sleep! One of the worst experiences of my life.

OP - good luck, I never ever found a preventative for my pre-menstrual migraines and I tried/did just about everything mentioned above, including various courses of HRT.
I do find that good old Paramax is a bit helpful if I feel a migraine coming on, as I wake up.

Nothing stops my ordinary migraines with auras and sometimes there just is that flashing light or thumping bass and there you go.

Thanks hun. I do get waves of a nasty headache for a few secs but should be glad that it isn't full on migrane!
