If I Could Only…: Desperate Treatments That Sometimes Seem Like They Just Might Work

Anyone who’s read about migraine (either online or in books or, like most of us, both) knows that some of the remedies our fellow migraineurs of yore used fly in the face of modern medicine. (Drilling to the head, anyone?)

And anyone who’s had a very painful migraine before can understand why someone might think remedies that sound at least a little bit crazy to the healthy mind sound like potential solutions to someone in severe head pain.

Wishing for a physical comfort

Last month I had such an awful migraine and found myself thinking, “If only I could put ice on my eyebrow, I would feel fine.” (I tried it; it didn’t work.)  I revised my thought: “If Jim would give me a neck massage, I think I’d feel better.” (It helped for a second in the moment, but had no lasting power apart from my feeling comforted.) My instinct was that there was one physical thing I could implement—application of ice, a massage—that would ease the discomfort.

This got me thinking about all the times I have had those fleeting thoughts: “If only I could do x, my migraine would go away….If only I had y, I would feel so much better.” Even when these thoughts occur to me I know they’re mostly silly, but that doesn’t stop me from trying the less dangerous ones out once in awhile. Recently I had allergies and a migraine at the same time and was sure that blowing my nose would solve my migraine as well—nope, just made the head pain throb more.

“If only” thoughts

Here are some things I’ve scribbled down in subsequent migraine attacks since that terrible one last month. I made a point of writing down all the “if only” thoughts I had, and there are plenty!

If only I could just drill a tiny little hole above my ear like they did in the old days.

If only I could put my head in a vice—like, a soft vice—to put equal pressure all over my head.

If only I could have someone wash my hair, but without that uncomfortable neck “rest”  you lean back on at the salon.  Shampooing would feel so good.

If only I had more of this lavender-mint roll-on stuff. If I had enough to put on my eyebrows, I’d feel better.

If only I had one of those neck braces to hold my neck in place—then maybe I wouldn’t have gotten a migraine today.

If only I could sit in a really, really hot jacuzzi.

If only I could stand to dip my head in some ice water.

If only I could chop all my hair off and feel weightless.

If only I could blow all this congestion out of my head.

If only I could take my brain out of my head, wash it, and put it back in.

If only…

If only…

If only…

How many of you have had these fleeting thoughts, these instances when, at least for a second, your instincts tell you that there is a simple answer out there, a simple action you could take in order to find relief (even though it probably that turns out to be wrong)? Have any of these “if only” ideas actually worked for you?

    Until reading some comments on various posts I thought I was the only one that got sinus headaches and migraines at the same time.

    I literally was JUST talking specifically about this last night. At least I know I’m far from alone. (Replace “I just wish” with “If only…”)

    From my FB post :
    “I just wish I could maybe like have all the blood vessels on the right side of my head replaced with new ones that aren’t stimuli-hypersensitive a**holes”

    If only I can hit my head hard enough on something I will knock myself out and not feel the pain

    Washing my hair but the pressure of that lovely sink on my neck after a 3 day migraine, I actually fell asleep! Pressure on the back of my neck and forehead at the same time works. I have a buckwheat pillow (solid!) that stays put under my neck. Heated rice bag on my head, gives heat and pressure. A little Vicks under my nose, and a nap is a winning combination.

    Oh, I relate with this entirely. Here are a few of mine…

    If I could take an ice pick and stab it through my temple….
    If someone (I’ve asked my husband… he declined!) would just punch me just below my right eye…
    If I could just remove my eye temporarily…
    If I could only get a giant sucker like the little ones you use on babies to get the congestion in my sinuses out…

    And my most recent that humored my husband…
    If I could stick a shunt up my nose… hmmm … maybe a strong straw would work… (We laughed about explaining why I jammed a straw up my nose to ER personnel…)

    Best wishes for 2018 all 🙂 My TMJ problems were diagnosed first years ago, and I didn’t even know that I had migraines for a couple of years. The terrible pains began more as dental / jaw pain, so I used to really fantasize about having an absolute stash of the dentists’ local anesthetic injections, and imagined being able to numb my own mouth. I even told my orafacial pain specialist how I was willing to get all of my teeth pulled and get dentures if it would stop the pain 😮 Got migraine diagnosis later, and meds, but totally understand comments

    Yes, TMJ pain/TMJ syndrome often is the cause of migraines or happens in conjunction with (at least in my case). I feel like my jaw is always so tight and my mouth never relaxes. Chronic migraine sufferer for over 20 years. (I’m Now 38).

    Many times when I have a migraine I think how good it might how it might feel to be on the rack. The mid-evil tourture device, because I get so tense I need to feel limber and my neck “pulled” from my shoulders. Along with many people drilling a hole in my head to release the pressure. The lists of what if’s and wondering what it would feel like’s could last for days.

    If only my Dr would LISTEN to me when I say this all starts in my back! As soon as my back starts hurting I am in for trouble.

    If only I could get more than 9 Imitrex a month… chronic migraines are 15+ a month, so what am I supposed to do to control the others…

    If only the Botox actually lasted / controlled for 3 months. My last 2 – 3 weeks before my next treatment are HELL, and I am out of Imitrex.

    Ask your doctor about doing a preauthorization for more medication than you have been initially prescribed. The doctor will have to do a preauthorization each time they do a brand new script, usually once a year minimum.

    If I could only get a head transplant, I don’t care what the replacement looks like…
    If I could only drill a little hole, right here under my right eye, all this migraine causing ooze would run out….
    If I could only make myself sneeze a few more times this congestion/pressure is sure to clear up…
    If only I could walk around with duct tape wrapped sooo tightly around my head…
    If only someone would carry my head around for me today….
    If only I could sit under this shower until the pain passes….

    I love reading things like this! I feel like I’m the only one who has these crazy thoughts and it’s comforting to know I’m not. The vise is one of my favorite go to’s. I’ve also thought it would be great to take my head off and lay it down somewhere for a while to give my neck a rest. Or completely pack my head in ice…

    If only the muscle in my neck could be cut in half to relieve the strain…
    If only I could take my teeth out…
    If only I could get my head, neck, and back into a neutral position to relieve the strain…
    If only I had taken the meds earlier…

    Not sure if you’ll even see this but I know that massage and chiropractic care has helped when my migraines are to the point my neck muscles can visible seen or felt shaking from the straing and tension. I get to the point where it feels like my neck won’t hold my head up anymore.

    Take care, and I hope you’re feeling okay today.

    I’ve had decompression surgery on the occipital, temporal, and frontal areas (two separate surgeries). The surgeon remove the lesser occipital and temporal nerves and decompressed the greater occipital and frontal. The difference is tremendous. I went from pretty much daily to about 6-10 stirrings of possible migraine per month, which I manage with Treximet. Once or twice a year I get a full-on migraine that the meds can’t stop, however they are less intense and less painful and much shorter. I do wish the surgeon had removed rather than decompressed the greater occipital, but I am so thankful for the relief I’ve gotten. It’s life changing. The surgery isn’t for everyone, but if the injections worked, you are likely a candidate for decompression.

    Im 30. I had my first migraine at 15. Last year, my mom (who also has migraines) out of the blue made a comment that I had been thinking for the previous 14 years. It was nice to know I wasn’t the only person who thought crazy during migraines:

    If only I could put an open syringe in my temple to release all the pressure on my brain.

    That’s still my first thought once my migraines start (including right now).

  • Kelly Hibbert

    Sadly, I’ve said most of those with the exception of the neck brace. I’ve also wanted my head chopped off, take my memories, put them in a new brain and put that back on. It sounds like the movies “All of Me” and “The Man with Two Brains”. More often I think of the drill to release the pain but as we all no, it won’t won’t.

  • The Migraine Girl moderator author

    I hear you!

    Yeah, the drill to relieve pressure is my go-to desperate wish of choice.

  • Kelly Hibbert
    4 years ago

    Oh man and the eye pain!!!! I wish I could push hard enough to make the little man stabbing it with a sword would go away or to pop my eye out completely! Sorry. You all keep reminding me of new stories. One thing I haven’t said is I wish you all some peace and pain relief. I haven’t given up in 26+ years and I try all I can in trials and homeopathic remedies. I do advise very few things as treatments that have helped. Biofeedback helps, when I have the dark, silent space I need to use it but I do stick my tongue between my teeth, given time it relaxes my jaw a bit. Aside from that I believe 100% in some sort of satin migraine eye pillow. I keep mine in ziplock bags in my freezer. That is the only must have I recommend. I recently read about Epsom Salt for baths and a cream version for lotion, that way the magnesium is absorbed into your body differently and it’s supposed to help. I’m working on in and I’ll let you know. Until then, breathe, it’s the only way I get through my days, focussing on each breath!

  • Kelly Hibbert

    As I scoped down I forgot the weather. I’ve looked into places to move to with low humidity and breezes with temps in the 70s-80s. I e screamed and begged for storms to start and relive the pressure for feeling that storm for two days as it got closer and more painful until it got pitch black and the rain poured so heavily, the pounding it made hurt too! I wish for a padded room with soundproof walls and a place to hear a babbling brook, maybe not babbling, a trickling stream with a volume switch.

  • sweetmalis

    Hello there, sadly I have not only had the thoughts you are describing, this pass week after my second round of Botox which hasn’t done much except being sore for the next few days. But my doctor is so ignorant as far as results in other patients, comparing us as if “we” all feel the same and all that great stuff. Out of desperation and anger I did say, “How about you write me a prescription for a hand gun and a bullet”. Of course that didn’t go over well, since I have a history and being treated weekly by a psychiatrist for major depression with anxiety. But while that comment was a little crazy and I don’t want to kill myself, just yet, but yeah..its so hard to do this and that, and wait and pray SOMETHING ANYTHING would work, I know I will not be cured, I get about 13-15 migraines a month, or they can last for days. And even friends and family are always relaying me to “try a new gluten free diet, it worked for so and so”, or try “biofeedback” and its just like while I don’t want to offend anyone since I know they all mean well, but like you said, if its an option at all, I have done it already or about to, and yet no better. But I am trying to stay positive and its very difficult but this website has at times been my “life saver” and while I would NEVER wish migraines to my worst enemy, it is comforting to know I am not alone or crazy or the only one that feels and thinks about migraines but also are on here to help others. I wish I can stay on here to be able to contribute any new treatments or ideas, but I am about to take my Imitrex shot and hopefully feel better and get some sleep. Good luck and prayers to everyone and Thank-you all Malissa

    I realize this is an old post, but I wanted to thank you!
    I tend to ask for headectomies, personally.

    I’m in a similar situation, with chronic daily migraines that have taken over my life despite medications, Botox, surgeries, etc.
    I’ve never asked for a gun and a bullet from my doctor, but I’ve demanded what they expect me to do if I have severe pain most days, get 9 doses (5 days) of one medication and 10 days worth of another. Without actual treatment as CHRONIC PAIN I can’t work, but they won’t support disability so I I have no sustained income- what is their expectation, suicide?
    Oh, boy, they didn’t like that! But seriously, when they are asked how to manage when the treatment doesn’t fit the disease profile and they have no answer, what do they expect?

    Malissa,

    I’m sorry it took me awhile to respond to your comment. I was just heartbroken to read your message, knowing how awful you must feel and how isolating it is when you’re surrounded by well-intentioned people who just don’t get it. I know you said you’re not seriously considering suicide, but I do want you to call a loved one or a suicide hotline if you feel so desperate you’re on the verge: 1-800-273-8255.

    In the meantime, I wonder if you’ve been seen by a migraine specialist–not just a doctor who happens to treat migraine, but someone with expertise in the field who keeps up with a variety of treatments and research. This link might be a good jumping-off point: https://migraine.com/blog/making-decision-see-headache-specialist/

    Take care, and let me know how it’s going!

    Right now…my only “if only” pertains to the weather…

    If only, I could control the weather to make it actually storm (or make it disappear…that’d work too)…then I would find relief.

    My migraine is mild today (especially related to the scare from last week that I had at work…), and it’s all from the storm system that feels like it is simply taunting me. The storm either needs to go away completely…or needs to unleash its fury and make it pour down rain, like yesterday. I’m thankful my storm-triggered migraine attacks tend to be very mild…and are treatable with simple ibuprofen.

    I put one heel of each palm on each temple and push gently-hard! They sell those wire self head massage things at Bed Bath & Beyond. If you like menthol, Cryoderm roll on is the best relief there is. All those type things do is divert your senses to the more pronounced skin sensation of the strong mental, the name of that phenomenon eludes my Level 4 pain right now, but I can’t function without the incredible perceived relief of Cryoderm. Get it online. A very thick microwaveable neck therapy pad is indispensable for my stiff-arthritic-stress-prone-migraine-trigger neck. These are most of my remedies. Boring, actually. Maybe helpful to someone. But great article and all your suggestions are so helpful!

    If only pushing out my eyeball would alleviate the pressure in my brain.

    If only hitting my head they way I did back then reversed the “curse” and made me the way I was before migraines.

  • The Migraine Girl moderator author
    4 years ago

    Yes. I feel you on these.

  • quilter laura
    4 years ago

    Absolutely yes.

    I dream of cutting all my hair off when it starts to hurt. I usually wrap it in a really tight bun or ponytail and that gives pretty good relief. Even when it eventually starts to hurt from being tied so tight it still helps. Somehow adding that different pain lessens the strength of the original one.

    Also crying. If I can cry during a migraine, its like opening up my head and letting the pain and pressure out.

    Sometimes I just want to smash my head against the wall.

    And my favorite if only that actually works, ice cream. I sit down in a comfy dark spot and slowly eat Coconut Bliss, the entire pint if I want. The brain freeze really helps and its one of the few things I can eat when nauseous, so also helping with low blood sugar.

    I can relate to the head vice…Sometimes I will squeeze my head so hard that I’m afraid I will fracture my skull…like I’m strong enough to do that!! LOL But, yes, the constant pressure does feel good when my head is pounding. I also enjoy having someone wash my hair. I’ll admit that I have gone to the salon to do just that when I was having an attack. Yes, the neck rest isn’t totally comfortable, but I still enjoy the scalp massage. My stylist would spend an extra few minutes just to help me out. 🙂 My husband will also give me a scalp massage as well as apply pressure to my head when I have a particularly bad one. Yes, it sounds crazy to ask someone to squeeze your head, but I say, whatever helps!!!

    It makes me feel strangely better to read someone else does the if only game, because I’ve come up with some crazy plans over the Years. Totally on the drilling thing. Once I was convinced if I could just slam my head in the door, it would make it somehow better. I knew it was time for the er on that one because it really started to seem reasonable. Other (slightly) more sane ideas pop into my head on a daily basis… If I could just pop my neck (terrible idea), if I could just so stay on this ice pack until my brain somehow freezes too, if I just get rid of this offending smell… if…

    OMG I have had a lot of what if thoughts. My husband knows I am ready to go to an ER when I ask him to please cut my head off so it will quit hurting. about 5 years ago I started having trouble with the left trigeminal nerve (all three sections). As a 40 plus year sufferer of migraines, the trigeminal pain was far more painful. When the pain became constant about three years ago, I had surgery and yes they cut a hole in the side of my skull and went up by the brainstem and padded the nerve from the blood vessels that were damaging the nerve. Surgery helped a lot for the nerve for now but too bad it did not also help my migraines.

  • peeperview

    This is too funny. To hear these things from someone else is incredibly affirming. It also gives me a glimpse of how absurd it must sound to non-migraineurs. Who in their right mind would want to inflict more pain in response to already unbearable pain? I never claim to be in my right mind during a migraine anyway, so who cares, right? I, too, have had visions of the head-vice-grip. The (silent) power drilling of holes through my skull. I’ve also wished I could squeeze my head tight enough to pop it. Like a pimple or boil. I know it’s disgusting, but I bet it would feel so good! And I would do it if I could. My most common fantasy, though, is I wish I could unscrew my head and put it in the freezer until the migraine is gone. Sigh . . . It’s good to dream.

    Today I dreamed of having a feeding tube. I’ve been too nauseated to eat as much or as well as I should for the last week, and I know it’s contributing to the Migraine Monster. If I could just bypass my mouth and not have to taste it… Or better yet, get the nutrients straight into my bloodstream. Skip the digestive system altogether. Think insurance would pay for that?

    I have been so nauseated and blah that I’ve wished for a way to be healthily fed without actually having to eat, chew, swallow, and digest. Ugh.

    Hope you’re feeling good today!
