      Ice hat. Ice pack goes in this "hat" and it encompasses your head and eyes with gentle pressure and numbing cold.

      I feel sumatriptan nasal spray (prescription) works pretty well if you can take it before the migraine gets sets in.

      Imitrex injections or the tablets was a little bit relief for me before I go to ER

      Ice packs help me a lot. There are even specialized ones for Migraines. The one I have is called “Headache Hat” (I think I purchased on Amazon). Another I readily know the name of is called “Ice Kap”. However, if you search “Headache Hat” or “Headache Ice Pack” on Amazon, for instance, many other similar options pop up. Also, I have personally found ‘Goody’s Headache Powder’ (Ingredients almost (?) identical to Excedrin) to act faster & better than Excedrin. Also, if one takes Excedrin & other fast-acting otc painkillers (such as Ibuprofen, Tylenol, etc) too often for migraine headaches, these are more likely to cause “rebound” headaches/migraines as opposed to the longer acting type, like Aleve (Naproxen). Best of luck to you!

      I get migraines so bad I get physically ill. I find thc/cbd calms mine then when nausea control some coffee and heat and ice. And rub my infused salve I make in.

      Imitrex has been my godsend for 30 years. Almost always going away within sn hour and gone shortly after. Before it was available, i had not found anything that relieved the pain. Some things like ice, keeping still, avoiding temp/sound/light changes. Here's one odd thing that helps, but i use it with imitrex as speeds relief (15 min vs 1 hour). 2 Excedrin and several gulps from a fresh can of Mt. Dew (lots of bubbles, tickles inside my ears) and excelerates the caffeine in the Excedrin.

      Hi, cold compresses on your neck. That works for me!
