Painfree32, I have both fibro & migraines, as well as cervicogenic headaches from disc issues. When I first feel a migraine coming on I immediately take Midrin (migraine med). If not available then I take Tylenol or Excedrin. Then I get quiet and still, without any bright lights (curtains closed), just relaxing my mind & body. Relaxation techniques and gentle soothing music or sounds of nature generally prevent full blown headaches. Muscle relaxers help with the cervicogenic headaches. Hugs love & prayers you find coping techniques that work for you! 😁💕🙏🌸
I have chronic migraines 15-19 a month. And wonderful fibro! Try putting your feet in the hottest water you can handle. Put the ice pack on your neck. The way it works is your body will naturally want all the blood to run to your feet. Therefore the cold head area thins out. Causing your veins to shrink to normal size. It only helps me if it's a mild migraine. But sometimes it helps!
