Migraines...they suck

Migraines...they suck

If you've ever had one, then you know they suck. Throbbing pain, head pressure, upset stomach, stabbing discomfort....generally debilitating.

I had one yesterday. I had the dubious luck to get the blinding peripheral vision auras first and knew what was coming. I got myself some ibuprofen first, started drinking water, caffeine, and eating chocolate. Second, I rushed home from work and grabbed my hot migraine salve

This was my first true experiment. I did have a friend tell me that it helped her and while her headache wasn't eliminated (because honestly, not even modern medicine has that figured out) the symptoms were significantly improved.

I was hot, sweating, and nauseous. I knew I needed to cool down. I threw my work clothes off, cracked a few windows and laid down with my eyes shut, but not too tight because it pulls and makes my skull want to explode.

The lid slid off and I rubbed it along my temples, and forehead. It was smooth and didn't pull, so step one of the experience was complete. I rubbed fairly firmly along my temple and up into my hair and then above my eyebrows. I continued down along the sides and bridge of my nose, careful to avoid my eyes; essential oils will cause a burning sensation.

The relief was not instant, but the combination of ibuprofen and salve got rid of the throbbing in my temples and behind my eyes. I was happy that it worked...

I applied it a few more times since I enjoyed the experience of massaging my aching skull and my symptoms were gone through the night.

This morning when I woke, I could feel it hanging around, lurking. I gulped down some more ibuprofen and packed both hot and cold salves for work.

At work, I felt the pain coming, but I was cold sweating a little. My hands, feet, and nose felt cold. Out came the cold migraine salve. I did the same massage techniques and it felt very nice. The scent of the salve was also very nice and relaxing.

If anyone has had a similar experience or needs guidance on which salve is best, or just wants to tell me how much migraines suck....Speak To Me. I want to hear your voice.
