Guys, if you have no migraines you do not know the happiness how to wake up and feel fresh and happy!

A long time ago I was in hospital with cryptococcal meningitis which makes a migraine seem positively pleasant.
I can say that diamorphine (street name: heroin) works a treat but it is a bit of a drastic solution and I wouldn't recommend that without medical supervision.
I was getting 4 injections per day (although not at recreational levels) for 6 weeks after that physical addiction sets in so they stopped it then. Makes you sweat like a pig too.

I found thru desperate experiment that I can avert a migraine by taking 3 x 325 mg ASA and 60mg of pseudoephedrine hydrochloride. Read the warning on the latter's package about monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor drugs.

I suffered terrible headaches and blurred vision bouts for a number of years.
Then one day I had a check up with the doctor and he said I had high blood pressure.
I was given medication for the high blood pressure and the headaches and blurred vision didn't come back.

My wife suffers from migraines and they consistently last 4 days. She used to get relief from Codral Forte until it went off the market. A mixture of aspirin and codeine was not as effective even though it was the same components. She tried various different products and none were effective. What works with some does not work on others so you have to find your own solution.

She found a miracle in Imigran 20mg nasal spray which is taken on the onset of a migraine and is gone in less than 30 minutes and stays away. It's no good if the migraine is established and must be taken when the first sign appears. Sufferers know the difference between the start of a migraine or headache.

Fortunately the migraines have changed from 1 a fortnight for decades to only a couple a year so could be a sign of aging or change personal environment or foods.

have you tried ice packs when this full moon starts?
or going for a jog

If i were you I would be seeing a doctor, if you can afford it.

sounds like dehydration headaches to me.

Looks like 400 mg of L-Theanine helped. Feel much better.
