i have had a prescription in the past that sounds similar, is that the wafer you put on your tongue? if it is it didnt work, another prescription one i was given once made me violently sick :-(

Migraleve and a dark room hun. Its the ony thing that helps mine (well the pethidine did but I'm out of that now :( )
#7
dark room will help, often a little nap after you pop some pain killers.

Caffeine , cheese and alcohol particularly red wine will make it worse.

Tea, coffee, chocolate, coke all have caffeine in. aAll the good stuff you cant have basically

oh bless, they are horrid. Im lucky i only get them about twice a year..and not as bad as some people.
Dark room, silence, and sleep only works for me.

I have a friend who actually looses her vision and use down her one side for days....

Its awfull...

Hope you feel better soon

if you are over 18, try imigran - you can get these from the pharmacy, they are similar to the naramig. If not the strongest painkillers u can get from ur pharmacy are called paramol, 2 of these should do the trick.

lately a bit more, used to get them bad years ago, was referred to a specialist and was prescibed a hormone tablet (cant remember what) cos apparently i was lacking a hormone which was causing the migraines, they did do the job but i stopped taking them and i didnt suffer for ages, maybe i need a review :oops:

i'll send the kids over, they've had their tea :-D

:)dark shades is also good
#12
I get all wobbly, can't stand and have no option other than to lie down in a dark room near a bucket so I can vomit without having to move too far, lovely.

I take sanomigran daily, they are migraine preventative tablets and are worth taking if you get hit with migraines regularly. If these don't do the trick and I start to take a migraine, as long as it doesn't come on too quickly I take zomig. Providing I can get one of these down my neck before the vomming starts my migraine usually stops. These too are prescription only.

No it's the one with the pink tablets and yellow tablets, one for the start and the other for if it's still continuing.

What about GIN and lots of it:-D

I suffer bad too to the point it would reduce me to tears and make me violently sick..........i sometimes take Migraleve but sometimes it didn't stop it.

My mother gave me 2 x500mg Co-Dydramol (which are painkillers for her Arthritis) to try and WOW it worked loads better.

It completely stops it before it gets bad.........it even makes you feel floaty after an hour or so. :thumbsup:

I might try and get these on prescription from the doctor now that i've found a solution.

I can see how some folk get addicted to them.

I also found that 'Sitting Up' in a dark room helps loads too.....Lying down for me seems to make it 100x worse.

have to comment on this again, this sounds like me when i used to have Gall stone attacks - yes a right bundle of joy me, again not had one in years, in fact i only really ever suffered when i was pregnant, the last one just after i gave birth 8 years ago but it was awful, hot/cold flushes, headache, violent sickness, stomach pains, chest pains, palpitations etc, i used to think i was dying! the only position i was comfortable in was on all fours! a great sight!

Migraleve duo aur the pink and yellow ones - not that strong though, pain killer in them is just co-codamol, pink one has an anti-sickness agent in it.
#22
I know this dosen't help now but there is the migrane trust in London you could go to [url]www.migrainetrust.org[/url]

My wife went after suffering for years and found them v helpful hope you feel better soon

Superb !!! Cheers for that ManJ ....didn't know you could get it over the counter !

It looks like its the Dihydrocodeine in the Co-Dydramol that's helping me out which is also in the Paramol.

I'll get the wife to buy me some Paramol tomorrow to try for next time my head is going to explode ! Cheers !! :thumbsup:

funny in a good way?

im hoping to try different remedies until i find one that wont make me sick, so if i get an attack at work i can at least carry on till shift end, the last bad one i had a work was awful, it took me double time cos i do alot of bending over :oops: and everyttime i did my insides of my head felt they were moving and i'd feel faint :cry: so i'd have to sit down till i felt better :x
#30
i take paramol, and an anti sickness and go to sleep untill it is over. they are horrid.

and the kids dont help
#31
you can also take an anti depresant that has a great side effect of stopping migraines. my mil tried it for her migraines.

If the Paramol is anything like the Co-Dydramol then yeah they make you feel oddly good.

I say 'oddly' cos it feels like your on another planet and spaced out. :thumbsup:

In the morning after you sleep it's like someone's wiped your mind and it's clear again. :-D

Yup in a good way. Might make u feel as though ur floating - depends on how u tolerate dihydrocodeine, a bit like being on drugs - not that ive tried drugs but i can imagine its the same sort of feeling as the methadone addicts try and buy them when they come in! Gits!!!

I don't get migraines but i have a neurological condition that gives me a permenant headache amongst other things and have a few tips to keep the pressure surrounding your brain low it may help.
Avoid caffine, aspartame(sweetner used in drinks and some foods), co-codamol, ibuprofen, these all raise intracranial pressure

Try not to lie completely flat keep the level of your head higher then the bottom of your spine.

Hope you get some relief soon.
#37
Nowt touches mine have to get in bed and sit em out, get big 2 day jobbies, violent nausea and borderline hallucinations (not sure if awake or asleep sorta feeling) Worst thing in the world.
#38
As many have mentioned the only solution I've found which has any effect is to get into darkness as quickly as possible and stay there. Before I get the actual migraine I always start to lose my vision which is the sign to get to a dark room, lie down and then wait until it has passed. Tried a few different medications although just basic over the counter items but didn't really find they made any difference although it's hard to tell. Any exposure to light seemed to make the problem worse and prolong it, PCs and TVs are particularly bad.

Thankfully in recent years the problem has mostly gone but I do appreciate what a difficulty it can be especially when you need to do something. The last one happened on the day I was meant to be moving house which was a real pain in the neck but just had to delay it.

My 11 year old son has been getting migraines since last year, he only has one every few months or so, but cries in pain and is violently sick...........the doctor wont prescribe him anything because of his age, we are trying to get him to recognise the signs before it gets really bad, so we can give him ibuprofen before the sickness sets in. Its heartbreaking to see, knowing that there isnt a lot we can do to help :-(

Because of his age.... as a precaution ...i'd also get his eyes tested ...just in case it's a factor....:)
