Hi all,I've had migrains for decades and have tried many meds. The problem with meds for me (if they work) is that I'm usually too nauseous to keep 'em down.So over the years I've learned to use the pointed edge of a brick. My migrains follow one painful path on the left side down to the left back of my neck. I position the brick in bed on it's edge, then lay down with my neck on the edge facing up (pillows arranged to support the rest of my head). I position it such that it puts pressure on the painful area running down my neck.It tends to relieve the pain from the neck up. I'm not sure why it works: I've always assumed that it's constricting the blood flow in an artery that had previously dialated and allowed to much blood to flow and pound into the head. Regardless, this method plus a judicious application of an icepack decreases the problem such that I can choke down some meds and keep 'em down.Regards,Pentiumm
