- Migraine headaches are best treated when they are just starting. Don't wait for a headache to get really bad before drinking an analgesic.
- When you get a migraine, avoid noise & bright lights. These are stimuli that aggravate the headache.It is best to stay in a dim, quiet room until the episode subsides.
- Sleep it off. Migraines are alleviated by sleep, so this may work for you.
When you have headaches as severe as migraneurs do (and you don't know you're one), it can be very alarming. You have to identify the enemy for you to know how to fight back.
