I have a really bad migraine and usually I try a hot washcloth on my head or head-on.....
Any help would be appreciated.

No rocket science here but the times when I can feel one coming on I usually:
make sure I have had enough to eat / eat something healthy
make sure I have had enough water
take a walk (not always possible but it usually helps)

I also try and take frequent "screen breaks". staring at a computer screen all day can be bad news.
