I have a very long migraine story,with lots of hardcore attackes in earlier years. but in the least weeks i experienced a "new quality" of headache
feels like a lot of pressure in the brain and somebody turning a rusty spear around between eye and temple really terrible.
sometimes i know the causes, sometimes i am clueless.
the only thing that helps is watch yourself, maybe make a diary, where you note when, where, why headaches occur, and improve your lifestyle.
Everybody reacts different, sometimes a coffe just before the headaches helps sometimes a coffee kickstarts it,
Here is what i experienced, some already mentionend in the thread, maybe it helps you;
Postive against headaches: drink lots of water, head massage, tiger balm on temples, under nose on the neck, wet tissue on front, sleep, silence,
fresh air, or oxygen from a tank, magnesium.
And when its really bad i feel much better after vomiting, it s euukks but helps
Headache starters; smoking (much less with additive free cigarettes, still not healthy though), alcohol, most kinds of smelly "fume"; perfume,
gasoline, cleanser, flickering lights (monitor !!!) , stress --> tense shoulders, neck, dehydration, to much sunshine, but also not enough sunshine in
the winter, white chocolate (!) , computergames, big screen cinemas..
