Migraine Treatments

migraine treatments

Migraine treatments range vastly and so do their results for each person. There are a variety of ways to treat migraine.  Mind, body and soul therapies can be used along with preventative and abortive efforts.  What works for me may not work for you.  I have tried a lot because a lot has failed, not been worth the money, side effects or minimal help.  I have found treatment that provides great relief and some that remain part of my daily life.  Please take a look at some common treatments I’ve tried and decide for yourself.

Treating Migraine Triggers 

  • Caffeine
    • Can trigger and can help treat depending on each person.  Often not recommended by physicians if you have chronic migraine but in episodic acute attacks it can be used to enhance the effectiveness of some medications. It helps me but only with consistency on how much and when. Proceed with caution and medical supervision.
  • Sleep
    • Sleep during a migraine attack provides significant relief for me. Sometimes it’s hard to fall asleep and sometimes I wake with a migraine.
    • Eye mask or headache hat– to shut out the light and add cold therapy
  • Dark/Quiet Room
    • Shut out light and noise. During a migraine attack even the light on my clock hurts.
  • Altering light
  • Hydration
    •  Dehydration is a known migraine trigger. I use additional electrolytes and tablets to help boost hydration along with lots of water.

But after this Emmy-nominated comedian spoke at the 5th Migraine World Summit, I now see her as another migraine teammate. It’s a weird thing when…
