My weird Classic Migraine Cure

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’m hoping that any sufferer of classic migraines may read this and benefit from my experience. I am not a doctor or any specialist, just a guy that suffererd with classic migraines for around 15 years and finally by co-incidence managed to find the process below that stopped them dead in their tracks.

This worked for me, a couple of friends, and my wife. I try and share this with all people that suffer from classic migraines that I meet or through forums like this.

I suffered from classic migraines for 15 years and by shear coincidence found a process that when followed stops them dead in their tracks before they start.

What is important is that you do suffer from the classic type of migraine : Do you get the early warning bell : which is an aura or spots, which then progress to numbness in the face, then nausea and finally an intense head ache where you cannot face any sort of light, and need to rest in a state of darkness. 

I used to lock my self in a cupboard seeking complete darkness.

So I tried all sorts of doctors, medication , even a headache clinic, and nothing helped. 

I used to play soccer, and one day I was just out of the army, playing a game of soccer . We had just started, I was on the field when I started getting the “spots”, I new I had to get off the field as I had about 30 minutes before I would experience the worst migraine. By this stage I experienced about 3 migraines a week.

Co-incidentally as the spots arrived that day, I also felt like sneezing, and what I normally do when I get the urge to sneeze, is look into a bright light, this helps the sneeze come quickly. So I naturally glanced at the sun for about 3 or 4 seconds.

This made me sneeze, but what it also did is made my spots go away. So here I am waiting for my migraine to come but it never came.

I thought this was weird as I would always get a migraine after the spots. I put 2 and 2 together and realized that staring at a bright light may have caused this.

So I waited for the next migraine to arrive, a day or so later. The minute I got the early warning spots/or aura, I ran outside and stared at the sun for 3 or 4 seconds, looked away, stared again, looked away, and I think I tried it again for 2 or 3 seconds, and noticed that the spots went away. To my utter joy, once again the migraine did not develop. So for the next couple of months I realized if I stared at the sun by day, or at a bright light at night, just when the spots arrived, it would stop my migraine dead in its tracks.

The important thing was to do this the minute I saw the spots/aura. If I was too late, the migraine would develop.

It’s funny the, irony is that bright light really affects you when you have a migraine, who would think that bright light is what causes a reaction in your head to stop the migraine from happening?????

After doing this for about 1 year, my migraines completely disappeared, I never even got the spots.

I have helped my wife and some friends who have suffered from classic migraines. And have noticed that it is important that people that suffer from the same symptoms as mine, tend to have successful results.

So remember that staring at the sun is dangerous and my process sounds ludicrous, but it worked for me and some friends of mine including my wife.

If you try it, it is at your own risk, but remember, the important thing is to get it when the aura or spots arrive before the migraine, and it only takes 2 or 3 seconds at a time to glance at the sun, look away, if the spots are still there try it a second time and maybe even a third. I cannot guarantee that this will work for all migraine sufferers. But it is FREE and worth a try!!!!

Good luck

    This is fascinating.  If only you could suggest cure for migraine without aura.  Look forward to reading replies.

      Yes, like Chris I do not get the aura with my migraines.....sometimes I start to feel eye pressure as an onset to a migraine. Day before yesterday I started one due to weather changes.......I don't know what to take for that as sometimes Rizatriptan does not work as well when that happens...when there is sinus issues envolved.  I tried sudafed but did not help much.  I have read this about the sun on an earlier blog.  Did you receive responses from that one to see if it helped other bloggers?

      Interesting......but have to be very careful not to damage eyes.  I hope other bloggers will let us all know if this works for others.

      Hi Wendy

      Yes so have had a good rate of success from people that have the Classic Migraines, and that get the spots/Aura/numbness/nausea etc.... and not sure of anyone that has tried this with different warning signs or different migrains to this one.

      Yes and as I have always warned people that staring at the sun is very dangerous, but I never stared for longer than a second or 2, and actually at night when there was no sun, and I felt a migrain coming on, I would just have a quick stare or 2 at my bed side lamp but never longer than a second or 2.  It seems that the sudden shock of a bright light would stop the spots or aura and cause some kind of reaction which stopped my migrain..
