What to do if you have severe migraine pain

Headaches are already painful enough, let alone migraines. Those who have this problem know how painful migraines can be. It usually starts with severe pain on one side of the head, accompanied by nausea. In some cases, more complex symptoms may also occur.

Most people find some relief from a migraine when they rest or sleep in a dark room. But for those who are busy with work, it becomes very painful when the headache starts suddenly.

Sadly, there is no permanent cure for migraines. It is possible to reduce the incidence of this pain by choosing certain foods and following certain lifestyle rules. Some medications also work long-term. But when severe pain starts, resting in a dark place and drinking enough fluids can provide some relief.

Avoid looking at the computer or mobile screen at this time. Applying cold water, ice, or a wet cloth to the head can also reduce the pain. Massaging herbal oils or topical painkillers on the scalp may also provide some relief.
Many people find relief by drinking lukewarm tea or herbal tea. And there is medicine.

For migraine pain, take pain relievers such as paracetamol or aspirin as a first step. You can also take domperidone-like vomiting medicine. Many feel better after taking painkillers and antiemetics. And some people do not get relief from it; for them, there are drugs in the triptin group. These drugs give good results in many cases if they are taken within a certain period of time.

But for some, the pain is so complex that there is no relief at all. Some new drugs are used for this, and some other drugs are being researched. But in most cases, it is quite difficult to get complete relief in a short period of time.

Therefore, it is possible to control the pain of migraine by controlling food intake, such as eating less food such as chocolate, coffee, cheese, insomnia, anxiety, overwork, spending more time on TV, computers, etc., and taking some medicines regularly.

Remember, migraine pain is very intense and painful, but it is not a serious disease. Migraine pain cannot be cured, but it can be kept under control. Living with migraines can be easier if you are aware rather than anxious.
