I’ve had no luck with with actual migraine prevention. The most that has happened was maybe having a migraine 2x per week instead of 3x. Any suggestions?

      my amatryptiline dose was tripled to 30mg and a month ago I added magnesium gummies and Coq10 gummies. All the other meds are as needed when I get the migraine. There’s also like no pattern at all. I can eat and drink water and still get a migraine.

    What have you tried? I have don't Coq10 , ice packs on the back of my neck, stretching hot showers every night.

      I definitely notice my neck hurts before a migraine. I’m thinking I need more treatment for that possibly. I did physical therapy but just wasn’t sustainable for me

    Try an ice pack it is one of the first things I do when I feel one coming on. Light stretching after a hot shower helps to relax the muscles. I have tried injection and different meds and this has helped me out better.

      I notice neck pain often when I’m working and with clients so I wouldn’t be able to keep an ice pack while sitting up. But will try this at home. Have you ever tried one of those electrical stimulation machines?

        I have tried the stimulation and it can help but if you put them in the wrong place or do it for it to long it can make your migraine worse.

        I sit at a desk 80% of my job so staring at the computer as well as not having the best posture and have learned some little streches that i can do at work. might be good gor you to find ones that you can do while at work

    Really establish a sleep schedule for yourself if you haven't already. If you're light/sound sensitive like I am, I reccomend a reusable Gel Eye Mask (it looks like a sleep mask but has gel inside that you can keep in the freezer). Make sure you're in a dark, fairly quiet area and stay hydrated. Water will be your best friend, trust me. Be sure to track what you eat and find any patterns in foods to see if any may be a trigger. Stock up on Peppermint oil and massage your temples with it. Be sure to take anti-inflamatory medicine for your neck too !

      I sleep really nicely at least. I will try peppermint oil since I have that. In terms of a med for neck pain, would you just say Tylenol? Or should something be prescribed

        As I'm no med tech (just a psychology student lol) I would talk with your doctor about the best option since everyone's different. For me just popping an goody's, going to bed with my gel eyepack, and my noise blocking headphones after drinking 16oz of water, and sleeping for an hour *usually* does it for me but on bad days i might as well be comatose because I can't do a darn thing. So try tylenol and other over the counter pain relievers and if those aren't working talk with your doctor! ^^
