Do you take any preventatives???
I take daily preventatives, and then once the pain gets here I put ice on my head...put some type of comfortable clothes on, lay down on the bed, in the dark..turn the fan on and try to be still with soothing music on very low-if I can tolerate any noise...
I will take some type of abortive (Amerge, Axert, Frova, Imitrex, Relpax, Zomig), Pain Medication, and/or something for Nausea-which I usually have with my migraines. The key to this is that I generally do not take this type of thing more than twice, three times max per week....so I do not have to worry about the chances of rebound...
Massage is also a good alternative...
Chiropractic for some, Swimming or Jacuzzi/Hot tub....Yoga/Meditation
There are different things that work for different people. Have you thought about biofeedback?
