You know when you are reaching for your sunglasses inside, the music down the street in someone’s headphones is ridiculously loud and you feel nauseous as hell, that you have a migraine coming on. This is where I found myself earlier this afternoon and when I reached for my migraine pills, I didn’t have any. Well shit. So this is what I did to at least get the migraine downgraded to a headache.
Eat a healthy snack.
Have a cup of hot caffeinated tea.
Take a couple of ibuprofens.
Take a nap in the darkest, quietest corner in the house.
Whine about my head hurting.
Take a HOT HOT shower in the dark.
Massage head – sinus, temples, etc.
After all this and about 3 hours, I felt a little bit better. This sadly seemed like a huge victory but it has me wondering what everyone else does to fight a migraine or really, really, ridiculously bad headache.
