Can you tell me how you help ease the pain of a Migraine or Cluster Migraine?
I’ve had migraines since the age of 5 yrs old and was diagnoised with Cluster Migraines about 6 yrs. ago. I’ve tried many different medications and many different ways of getting relief from the horrible pain that they cause. There are days that I am totally disabled by them. The thing that seems to work best for me besides the pain medication is to go into a dark room that is quiet and use an ice pack on my head and try to sleep. Sometimes the Cluster Migraines that I get can go on for 4 days in a row. Other times medication will relieve them and I can continue on with my day. Sometimes I have to go into the ER and get a shot of a narcotic and nausea medicine. So I am wondering how others with Migraines or Cluster Migraines manage in their day to day life. Or if you know anyone with Migraines or Cluster Migraines, how do they help ease the pain? Thanks!
