I always mention to my dr my migraines he knows about them n i only get pain meds which havent been helping.. Only thing that helps a TINY bit is excedrin.. Ive taken 6 today.. This is the second day going with this migraine its so painful my stomach is so weak at the drop of a dine i may throw up.. I dont want to take anymore even though 8 is the max in a 24 hour period i used to take it everyday and DONT want that to start again for my daily headaches. I need some home remedies it hurts so bad i cant stop crying!!! I may throw up if i get up to use the restroom im super nauseas and dizzy..

I know EXACTLY what you're going through! I've had migraine headaches for almost 20 years and they are unbearable! I too have taken pain relievers such as Tylenol in such large doses (I took 7,000 mgs in one day!- the maximum amount is 4,000!) only to get little relief and then to be extremely nauseated! My advice to you is to keep a headache journal and to figure out what is causing the migraines to trigger. I've recently started to do so and have found my headaches to be much better at coping/ dealing with plus I no longer take high doses of pain meds. The biggest trigger for my migraines was alcohol consumption, if you drink I'd advise you to QUIT! Even the smallest of alcohol consumption gave me the worst migraine headaches! Also, if you get a migraine later at night and cannot sleep my best remedy for that was Advil PM or Tylenol PM or even Benadryl just take only two pills and you will feel ALOT better- I hope this helps because I know how hard it is to live with this terrible neurological disease!
