A single dose of 900-1000 mg aspirin can substantially reduce migraine headache pain within two hours, for more than half of people who take it. It also reduces any associated nausea, vomiting, and sensitivity to light or sound (photophobia or phonophobia)…” http://medicbulletin.com/Headache/
How much is substantial reduction and for how long? But not stopping the migraines and the headache will return. Of course it gives some relief, like almost any pain killer will. But the task is to stop migraine headaches. A simple massage will give relief from the pain while it is administered. It’s a well known fact that if we migraine sufferers take too much pain medication than medicine headache develops. Many migraine sufferers making this mistake. Thinking the more pain killer they take the more likely the migraine will stop.
Not so! “What sufferers want is for the pain to go away completely and quickly, and not return – though for many the headache does return within 24 hours of the first attack. ”
This is exactly what we want, but to no avail. The treatment at http://sufferingfrommigraine.com do almost exactly that but not quickly. The migraine don’t return as long as the treatment is taken daily. Satisfactory?? I think so. We have to accept the facts that there is no cure for it and we don’t know what causing it, but why live with the pain if we don’t have to.
Aspirin might give some relief but might be more psychological and the pain will return. Dread!
