I only wish over the counter meds would help. I have suffered with migraines since I was a teenager. Mine are completely debilitating. Before the migraine prescription meds came out in the '90's, I used to have to resort to losing 2-3 days of laying in bed with an ice pack until the pain subsided. Now, usually the prescription meds will work. However, I seem to be suffering from what they call rebound migraines. Meaning the meds work temporarily and then the headache comes right back. I am going to talk to my neurologist tomorrow about the newer prescriptions that prevent rebound migraines. I DON'T want to rely on the prescriptions meds, but I have been suffering from this particular migraine since Wednesday so I definitely need some intervention.
I don't drink, don't smoke and don't take anything with caffeine. I just want some relief!
