How does everyone get relief from a migraine?

I have tried just about everything and still the Dr’s cannot figure out my migraines. I get them everyday and am lost on what to do. Any advice?

    I have daily migraines and unfortunately have not found the magic cure. Some days abortives help, while some days nothing helps. Chiropractors can help some individuals. Staying cool and hydrated are very important. I have a thing for iccees and hot cheetos when I feel bad (no I do not know why). Unfortunately not everyone responds the same way. You have to find what works for you. So a lot of trial and error

    Hey Codybone,

    I’ve found for me a 100mg sumatriptan (the weaker 25mg does nothing for me however) and an ice pack works well, along with trying to find a cool, dark, quiet place to spend some time. At work they just about always have the a/c blasting, but dark and quiet is hard to come by. I do feel very drained as a side effect of the sumatriptan, but I’d much rather feel drained than get a killer migraine headache.

    As Joanna said, there’s no one size fits all answer. Best of luck to you in finding an effective treatment!

    Hi there Codybone,
    Thanks so much for your questions! Unfortunately, there is no one size fits all approach in migraine management and it is important to remember what works well for someone may not for another. Don’t give up hope to find effective treatment though!! There are many treatment options that can be considered. As you wait for possible feedback from the community, in the meantime let me share a few resources with you.
