Hi thank you for this article about migraines. Every month I'm suffering from it. Whenever I feel my migraine will start, I am taking analgesic and antipyretics immediately and massage my forehead with this liniment consists of methyl salicylate, menthol, and camphor. However, sometimes the pain will last until morning of the next day, if I had it in the afternoon. I just stay in bed and sleep. Sometimes I ask my husband to make love with me, then the faster it goes away. I cant tell why is this so?

I have gotten to the point where no treatment is working for my migraines, so I have been suffering tremendously. The migraine I have now, I got on September 2nd, and I cannot get rid of it, no matter what medicine I take.

I have been getting migraines since I was 17, and the only thing that works for me is Fiorinal. I have tried many other pills, but these seem to work the best.

I have had migraine headaches since I was 15 and the only medicine that stops it is Ergos. But I have to say that exercise is the best to prevent migranes. Keep out of stress with yoga or daily exercise. Also, eating healthy food and drinking a lot of water--this is the key too.
