Coping with Migraine On the Clock without Medication

Working while experiencing a migraine attack is something none of us wants to do. Unfortunately, sometimes we have to keep pushing through for one reason or another, even on days we can’t take abortive or rescue medications. Today is one of those days for me. In this video, I discuss a few tricks that occasionally provide some relief while still on the clock, such as wearable ice packs, fingerless gloves, computer glasses, and a comfy seat. (Note: Please excuse the slow speech! I struggle not to trip over my words when experiencing an attack, and speaking a litte slower than normal helps.)

I’m eager to know what works for you. Do you have any tricks for working through an attack on those days when you can’t use medication? Please share in the comments below!
