I obtain migraines very frequently, especially when I’m on my time period. I’m on birth control currently. I’ve noticed that my migraine headaches have been getting worse — lasting longer, more intense — in recent months. What works for you?
modify: I’ve had migraines since i was about 8, but they do get more frequent with birth control. I have talked to my gyno and tried different delivery controls, and I have spoken to an MD and attempted both daily medication plus ones you take whenever feel a migraine arriving. They just seem to be obtaining worse.
There are losts of good answers, but the best answer:

I know someone that will push their forehead against the table for a few minutes — to have the pain be concentrated elsewhere.
I think being hydrated and trying to avoid noisy sounds and screamo songs tends to help. As much as I love some heavy metal and shouting (not saying screamo will be heavy), I get some poor headaches after listening for extended periods. Try to bring the refillable water bottle (ofcourse not the typical kind – such as NalGene) to work or college, wherever you go.
You could try rubbing the back of your neck — like 3-4 inches over where your neck fulfills your shoulders. Also, I think that will somehow cardio exercise helps. No idea why, but I have in no way had a headache while or even after a good workout.
additional: Do you get “enough” rest each night? It’s 12: forty eight AM here, and I can guarantee that I get headaches after a week of missing 2 hours a night of rest. (If 8 is the minimal, I get five or even six a night).
