This is the rundown of what I do when I have a migraine:
Light a Sandalwood incense
Breathe in lavender oil
Ignore stressful situations
Drink straight black coffee (reduces inflammation. I learned that in the Army)
Have sex (scientific studies have proven this to be true)
Drink wine (half a glass…not sh*t face drunk)
Tylenol Arthritis (recommended by my Chiropractor who says migraines stem from muscle tension) (this has been super effective)
Anti-nausea medicine (usually just an over the counter Alka-Seltzer Relief Chew)
Go to the Chiropractor
Stretching every day (my whole damn body and it feels amazing)
Walking at a fast pace for about a mile (bizarre, I know, but it helps for some reason)
Sleeping with no pillows
I just go down the list. I don’t take narcotics until I’ve had a migraine for three days in a row. That’s my desperation point. I’ve very rarely ever taken them. One of these on the list usually does the trick for me.
Migraines suck. I wish you well, my friend.
