How can I get rid of this ongoing migraine?

Yesterday at 6am I woke up with a migraine. It hurts so bad. I drank decaffeinated herbal tea three times yesterday and took advil migraine pills. But it hasn't gone away since. And my head is still killing me. Please, any advice would be much appreciated.

Do you wake up with headaches often SnowViolent? If so do you snore? Sometimes headaches like that can be a symptom of sleep apnea and not getting enough oxygen to your brain. Try deep breathing for a while and see if it helps a little, but you probably should see a doctor.

Hi, thank you, I dont snore but my headaches or migraines do wake me up often. Not everyday but some get really bad like the one I have now thats ongoing. I had bells palsy a few years ago and the doctor prescribed me strong advil migraine pills to take every time i get one. But they dont usually work. I will try the breathing exercises though, thank you.

There is an Ayurveda treatment for migraine which will help you to cure it entirely and it is available in Kerala. It is purely natural with zero side effects.

I had to change my diet and focus on avoiding triggers. After taking several doses of excedrin and at least a dose of Imitrex every single day for a long time, I decided I'd try anything.

Massage your temples, don't watch tv or listen to music too loud, keep lights off and use daylight. Not stimulating your brain is effective. Drink more tea, also try warm milk. Try out different and well known brands for migraine pills, like Tylenol and Aspirin. If all else fails, check into the hospital.

Yikes! Peppermint is one of MY triggers. Check into emergency room, they can put an IV in with Imitrex. Relief will come about quickly.
