Is there a migraine treatment?

Migraine headache is the type of headache
we don't quite understand yet. We don't know what causing it
and as a result we don't know how to cure it yet.
There are medications available that can reduce the pain or
numb the pain but most migraine sufferers
become immune to these medications. They either take too much
trying to get rid of it that way or take too little because of
fear of overdosing and make things worse than they are.
The former (when one taking too much) is when migraine
sufferers get a medicine headache on top of their
migraine headache and that just make things
worse. There are natural remedies that can lessen the pain a
bit and they do work for certain extent. There are
recommendations that people might follow. For example not
eating chocolate or cheese or not drinking coffee and alcohol,
they are told to watch out for the triggers and try to avoid
them in the future.
But most migraine sufferers don't know what these triggers
are, aside from some food items like cheese and chocolate, and
when the headache hits they can't even think
straight. I never knew what triggered mine. Sometimes I woke up
with the trigger already pulled.
When I've had my migraines I could tell
it's coming by seeing an aura around my right eye or just had
an uncomfortable feeling in my head around my right eye that
the migraine will come on. When I had that
feeling I started to take the migraine medication right away
trying to prevent it from coming on but never worked. I was
having chronic migraine headaches and that
means more than 15 days per month. I was having it 4 days of
When I've had a migraine headache my sense of smell became
so intense, if a group of women walked by me I could smell each
of their individual parfumes. If I had known the names of their
parfumes I would have been able to name the brand on each and
every one of them.
My other senses that intensified was sensitivity to light
and dust. I had to eat salty food and that helped some. (Like
fried pork or chicken or bread and butter with salt).
Also helped reducing the intensity of the pain when I was just
slurping coca cola or pepsi. Just a little bit in the mouth and
slowly swallow it so that the coke hits the pallet of the
mouth. That worked for other headaches too. (Only these two
type of drinks helped). Never removed the pain but momentarily
reduced the intensity.
I had found the treatment that works
and I am totally migraine free as long as I do
my daily treatment, but it has to be ongoing. There is no one
time shot of getting rid of migraine headaches. Lately there
have been stories going around that the heart is having a
little whole in it and that is what causing it. Blood vessels
are enlarging and causing migraine headaches. Hormones, or lack
of of them causing migraine headaches. But in reality there is
no sure fire cause of it yet.
Ongoing treatment is the only one that can get rid of it.
Meaning you have to consistently avoid the triggers (which is
very very very hard to do) or take daily treatments like I do,
or if you know of someone who had gotten rid of it somehow, ask
them for information on migraine treatment.
One thing is for sure though. With this migraine treatment
life is much better for me without my daily migraine headaches.
My relationship with friends and family improved a lot, my love
life improved a lot, and all I have to do is just not stopping
my daily treatment that takes less than 10 seconds per day.
Sounds incredible, huh?
