      Aimovig didn’t work for me But everyone is different, neither did emgality. Going to try a new one that you take three shots then skip three months then three shots ect ect….not sure of what the name is

      I take Imitrex and Zofran the combo usually helps. I hope you can find out something that works for you. If it is too painful you might have to be seen in an urgent care or ER. They have special migraine “cocktails” that help when its that bad. It’s IV fluids, IV Benadryl, magnesium IV, sometimes Toroidal IM. I forgot the rest but it helps. I hate going to them but if it is that long you may need the relief soon. 💕 🤗 🙏

      Migraines for me are triggered by food. Peanut butter, bananas, yogurt, all chess’s except American, sour cream and onions. If you eat any of theses things try to take them out of your diet and try to add them in one at a time. That’s how I found out these trigger my migraines. I usually have to go the the er when I get a migraine. Compazine and Benadryl work in IV form. Good luck.

      One thing, other than ice packs that I have tried is a soda high in caffeine and 800 mg (4 tabs) of ibuprofen. And sometimes a combination of both remedies.

      My pcp will give me a toradol shot if I am in a migraine storm and can't get it to let up. Have you tried that? If you've gotten all the way to botox, you probably have but I figured I'd toss it out there.

      Yes I do but I am looking for a new one I asked her to give me a referral to get a MRI but she would not.

      If it's been weeks, you may have an underlying problem. Are you dehydrated? I tend to get dehydrated during nasty migraines. Try some kind of Gatorade or electrolyte-replenishing drinks all day if you can handle it. Do you have a PCP? Let them know. I'm so sorry you're going through this?

      Aimovig has helped prevent almost all of my miagranes. I used to have 4 a week and since I started it I’ve only had one a month

        @Sierra_Turtle I agree Aimovig is definitely the best medicine I’ve ever been on. Some months I don’t get any migraine.

        @Sierra_Turtle I have tried that. I also have tried Botox for migraines both only made it worse.

          @DragonLady47 that sucks. Hope you are able to find a medication that works for you soon

      Have you tried BC powder or Goody’s. Of all the things I have tried they work the best
