I began to get migraines at age 25. They became progressively worse, often lasting 3 days. My family suffered as I could keep going at work but had to collapse at home. Only now 45 years later are they under control because I previously refused to accept that diet played a big part. All the usual triggers apply but i am on a Banting diet and limit myself to 3 cups of a coffee/chicory mix (ricoffee). Nuts are bad, especially almonds. All the things I love!
But for pain lie face down with the bones on the back of your hand applying pressure to the middle of the forehead.it works really well. (An old African remedy - some tie a string tightly around the forehead with the knot in the middle. Elastic with velcro works very well and an Indian headache band has 3 magnets on the forehead.
Airline eye masks help to cut out light.
When it comes to planning vacations or other events where travel is required, how much does migraine factor into your decision-making?
