  1. Great post! Informative! Helpful to us migraine sufferers! Thanks! ๐Ÿ’™

  2. Accupunture definitely works!! I done it for a couple of weeks, first my migraines got worse which is normal & then it lessened… I managed to be ONE WEEK MUGRAINE FREE YAYYY! Lol.

    Cold packs are soothing & peppermint oil helps nausea…

    Chriropractic treatment & reflexology helped me too.

    Thank you for this post ๐Ÿ’–

  3. my husband is on blood thinners so when he has a cold every cough triggers a migraine. We have a set of 3 reusable cold packs (the ones filled with little blue beads- I think they’re meant for back pain), and I cycle them out every few hours.

    and he lives on lots of extra strength Tylenol.

  4. I only recently began having ocular migraines, mostly triggered by barometric change. Still working on treatments. Acupuncture is my main form of medical care, probably keeping the problem still minor.
    Thanks for your likes of my blog posts
    I work with people living with chronic illnesses. Will refer them to your encouraging posts.

  5. I have had migraines since I was 11 years old(now 58), I was given quite an array of pain killers over the years. My triggers have changed also. Weather changes and some chemical smells are the worst for me, that and lack of sleep and depression. I currently take zolmitriptan for when they strike and it works, but if I feel it coming I can keep it to a dull throbbing with ibuprofen. Cold packs won’t get rid of them just make it manageable until the meds take effect. I think careful monitoring have helped me know my triggers and how to handle it. Everyone is so different and they have changed over the years.

    1. I have migraines as well and have taken several several medications and have exhausted them. I know do botox injections. You’re exactly right everyone is different and not everything works for everyone. I created a list from my experiences and research of reccomendations for others to try. They are just remedies that may help.

  6. Thank you Mackenzie for these tips! I do use peppermint for my migraines and it really does help! A cold ice pack on the back of my neck always helps as well. I am trying to eliminate stress, but I keep failing at that, but I will keep trying! I appreciate you sharing this post! You always seem to have amazing advice!!

  7. Iโ€™ve had migraines since I was 14. Theyโ€™re horrible. Nuts are one of my triggers. Itโ€™s important for people to know their triggers. Iโ€™m also sensitive to certain scents. I am so thankful our daughter doesnโ€™t have them since they run in the family.

  8. I used to get Migraines. I was then diagnosed with Metabolic Syndrome which after a lot of hard work I was able to reverse. The only thing that helped me was Zolmitriptan. This is a prescription medicine so please consult your Doctor before buying or consuming it.

      1. That was my life saver!! I guess it just goes to prove that each and every one of us is unique and there is no one size fits all opinion
