I suffer migraines regularly. Attacks can occur out of the blue with no warning.They can be down one side of my head over one eye or start in one spot and move all over my head.I get very sore eyes and suffer a lot of pain at the base of my skull also. I feel confused when trying to talk and can't recall information.The after affects can last for up to three days with the severe pain coming and going during that time.

I take 45% liquid magnesium diluted in water and drink it regularly over two or three hours. it doesn't remove the pain but reduces it.I also take voltaren 100mg if the pain gets too severe sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't.I have tried immigrain injections but they don't work.Going to bed with an ice pack on my head and over my eyes (blocking out the light)for a few hours is usually very beneficial also.

    i also get this, it is very scary as the pains can be sudden and very painfull. It took a while to find something that helped me, but maxalt, 10mg rizitriptin works wonders, it knocks you sideways abit and you can get woosy off it but if it stops the pain, it worth it.

    i hope this helps, and i feel for anyone out there that suffers from migraines, as unless you suffer from them its seldom people really understand the pain that they cause.

    I have to agree with you the only thing i found that helps is maxalts, and yep knock ya sideways but relieve the pain drastically.

    I have been taking Beta Blockers for over 12 years now to prevent migraine attacks, and they work alot! Hardly had any since i have been on them, only if i have stopped taking them for a short time do I experience the migraine again.

    Stress brings mine on, and bright lights start them also.

    Had them since I was 7, feel for anyone who suffers with them, and wouldnt wish them on anyone.

    Has anyone tried topical magnesium? It seems to help my headaches. I put it on the back of my neck, and it seems like it immediately reduces the spasms. Its kind of hard to believe that it works, because even the anti-inflammatory medicines don’t work as well. My doctor recommended it because I said I have trouble taking pills and would prefer a different way to take magnesium. I wonder if anyone else has had similar results with a magnesium gel. I can’t be the only one.
