I've had daily headaches for the past six years. I'm lucky to only get about 5-6 migraine a month but they're starting to become more frequent. I'll wake up with a headache and it will gradually get worse throughout the day until I can barely even think straight at night. I get all different kinds of headaches. Pressure, sinus, headaches just for the hell of it.
Meds don't help, even when taking 4 ibuprofen. I do know that perfume is a trigger but otherwise I'm clueless on what triggers them. I've gotten better about handling them. Whenever I feel one coming on, I actually get a fruit smoothie. The cold drink really helps. When I get home, all the lights are off in my room, no tv, and under the blanket I go. I cover my eyes with my pillow and press down to sleep. The pressure really alleviates the pain in my eyes. My last migraine it felt like my eyes were melting and lasted about three days. That was my first migraine that lasted more than a day and it was horrid.
I drink plenty of water which takes a bit Of the edge off. I've heard you can rub coconut oil on your temples to help. I tried that once and it actually did a pretty good job. I'm mainly subbing to get tips and tricks from people who know how I feel. It does not run in my family. I have a suspicion that I may have hypothyroidism as I have a lot of the other symptoms as well.
