Anyone know how to stop the awful migraines? My pressure levels appear to be stable so my neurologist doesn't think the migraines are related, but I never had them before developing IIH so I don't know how to prevent them from happening. I've been focusing on lifestyle changes but very little success.

One person suggested that when they notice a migraine coming on, they immediately cover their eyes for at least 10 minutes to "reset" their vision. If possible, they also try to take a nap to avoid any triggers making it worse. A small amount of caffeine can help as well. Another suggestion was to take a hot bath and keep your hands and feet in the hot water while resting an ice pack on the back of your neck. This helps get the circulation going to your extremities and reduces pressure in your head.
