The throbbing, pounding, blurry eyes, dizzying headache began in the middle of the night. I could feel the pounding in my head before I even lifted my head off the pillow or opened my eyes.
I knew the next 48 hours would be intense pain and extreme moodiness. When my migraine hits, there is nothing that can help or stop it.
For me, I have had migraines since I was a kid. I specifically remember being at my Gram’s house and coming in and having a headache. My Mom gave me some Tylenol and a Coke and said to lie down for a bit.
I’m in my 40’s now so I’ve had 30 years to figure out how to manage when I have them. This is what I have learned.
Specifically, Vitamin B2 and CoQ10. I started taking these supplements on a daily basis and my migraines have been significantly less.
If you don’t have a prescription for migraine meds, Ibuprofen and Tylenol have always been my go-to’s. You canI would talk to your doctor about how much you can take.
