   Woke up on this Friday morning with a migraine mad .  I know when I wake up with a  migraine then it will probably last for hours or maybe all day.  I have migrnal nasal spray (like DHE) and fiorcet for my migraines. Nothing seems to help me, I just have to let the migraine run it's course.  I went into the hospital back in Sept for DHE iv treatments but that didn't last for long. What do you guys take for your migraines that gives you some relief?   I'm suppose to  make a ginger bread house with my daughters and grandson today, I pray that my migraine will be gone by then.  Hubby is off today and wants to go out and enjoy the day, since we have been at home most of the week due to snow and an ice storm.  I pray that you all stay migraine free through this Christmas season.  May God hold you in His loving arms and bless you and your families.

I have found that packing my head in cool bags helps as well. (those flexible freezer gel bags, but instead of putting them in the freezer put them in the refrigerator) Plus I have that melt away razitriptain that I use for migraines as well.

I also find some relief from cold packs, especially around the base of my neck. And for the nausea, if it is not so bad that I can't stomach anything, ginger root tea,  or strawberries, or anything peppermint will often provide some relief without leaving that drug induced haze that so often comes with pharmasutical options (not that I don't use those as well when the time is right).
Hope that you were able to get through the ginger bread hoouse and the adventures with your hubby. Best wishes for a safe, healthy, migraine free holiday!
