Emne: Re: planting seeds
hahaha.. My first hubby decided to try and grow pot as well.. he would talk to the plants.. and give them light.. water, and really babied them.. they would always start to die.. but, then he would go away for the week.. (his job).. and I would neglect them fully.. haha I didn't want this stuff even growing in my house!! Anyway.. I wouldn't give them any water.. or sunlight.. just hoping they would fully die off.. but, to my surprise.. they actually got healthier!! LOL

That reminds me of the time my teenage son was growing a plant in his closet with a lamp over it 24/7. He told me it was a flower for me. Boy was I naive and gullible. I had a very sheltered life before marriage and I did not know anything about pot/mariuana and such. Hope I spelled it right. Did I feel foolish when my daughter told me what it really was, one day, when she was angry with her brother. See, even parents can learn from their kids. LMAO

Emne: Yes Viking.. I use Tylenol or similar which contain the
acetaminophen.. Usually I can tell if it will be a migraine day.. and I pop two of them down.. So rarely anymore do I need anything stronger..

What triggers my migraines are unstable sleep patterns.. Or a shift in my eating pattern..

Anger will also bring it on.. and strongly I might add.. so long ago I learned how to manage my anger.. lol

Those that do slip away, if it is at the beginning I can sometimes take the Tylenol.. and then lie down in darkness and no noise.. My children know the procedure when I do get them and are very good about letting me have some peace.. I usually meditate if that is what you call it.. I clear my head and tell my body bit by bit to relax.. I learned the technique about 10 years ago in my psych I class.. better known as self hypnotise.. but, on the rare occassion now a days if one were to go full blown I wouldn't run to the emergency room.. (I can't drive during them due to blacking out).. I would actually ask a friend for a couple of hits of a joint.. I know that sounds awful.. and I don't promote weed or pot.. but, it does take away migraines that have gone full blown.. and it is very natural..

Have you ever tried the modern migrane drugs? As I don`t live in the USA I don`t know their trade names over there, but any doctor would know what you mean if you asked if he/she thinks the TRIPTANS (eg. sumatriptan, rizatriptan) would be suitable for treating your headache.
They are very effective and safe, but work only for migraine type of headaches.
Scarlet`s allergies would most probably not be a problem because the triptans are totally different
kind of drugs than asperin, NSAIDs or opioids (eg. codeine). And have you tried acetaminophen? Your asperin/NSAID/codeine allergies do not prevent you from using acetaminophen which should always be the first drug to try for all headaches. And it is cheap too :).
Maybe the only bad thing about the triptans is that they are quite expensive :(.

Emne: Re: Actually,
Yes VikingX I have tried all of the remedies you mentioned...ibuprofen, anti-inflammitaories etc...under doctor supervision....unfortunately they all failed...i have now been prescribed a nasal spray form of pain relief (stadol) 2.5 ml bottle twice a month for my more serious attacks...and hydrocodone or butalbital for less painful ones.

Emne: Shoot no meds work for me once my migraine takes off in full force..
It took years to learn all the first warning signs that it was going to be a migraine day.. I have had them since I was 12.. my oldest gets them as well.. as well as my neice.. and my grandmother had them also..

I found that smoking a j just a puff or two.. will completely melt the pressure away within mins.. (I've only done that one time, but I do know that if another one gets away from me.. I will look for someone who has weed..)

prescription meds.. I am allergic to asprin and anything similar.. I get hives internally as well as externally.. I am also allergic to codine.. so pain relievers are something I steer clear of.. I have to depend on Tylenol to stop it at its earlier warnings..

caffein does relieve most headaches to some extent. But, of course, it`s effect is weak when compared with real pain relieving medicines.
The wast majority of headaches are not caused by migraine, but are usually of the "tension neck" type.
Anybody suffering from bad, chronic headaches should see a doctor to make certain that it is not a warning sign of something more dangerous (it usually isn`t).
1000 mg acetaminophen is the safest and relatively effective drug choice for most bad headaches. The second choice would be some non-steroidal anti-imflammatory drug, for example 800 mg ibuprofein. (always remember to read and follow the drug`s safety instructions)
100 mg of caffein (1 tablet or 1 cup of coffee) may boost the pain-relieving effect of those drugs a bit, might be worth trying out.
If those dozes don`t help see a doctor...there are
very effective, although reletively expensive,prescription drugs for migraine type headaches.

26. Juli 2004, 16:50:50
it sounds like it only helped the headache so much, because it was caused in the first place by the withdrawal of the caffeine.. so it's not a headache cure, but replacing the drug that was being withdrawn from.

Emne: I might be wrong here but....
i always thought that caffine would cause more headaches...i would love to kno how it works so i can try it :)

26. Juli 2004, 16:34:15
would that not have been caffeine withdrawal though ? If you'continued with the de-caf, those symptoms should've gone in time, like any drug you're gonna notice when you stop taking it.

I switched from regular coffee to de-caf because of being pregnant and wow got hit with headaches.After 2 days of hanging over the toilet bowl being sick from the headache i grabbed a real cup of coffee.Like magic my headache was gone.Caffine has been used for all kinds of headaches.
Always get a second opinion i tell my friends that all the time.

23. Juli 2004, 17:14:38
Emne: Re: Migraines..continued
couldn't agree with you more Foxy. All the suggestions that I have made to date are the things that I got asked and told by various doctors when I went to have my frequent migraines checked out. I seeked many 2nd opinions!

Emne: Re: Migraines..continued
It's the caffine in the coffee that takes away any kind of headache.If i had repeated Migraines i'd get checked out to make sure it wasn't something more serious.

sorry, as I remember, I'll post more info, unless people object to it :)
Another one to check is if you are drinking enough water every day ie your body may be dehydrated.

A nurse once told me to dissolve a couple of teaspoons of instant coffee with enough hot water to do so and then drink it! It is the foulest taste but boy does it work quickly. Best results occur when you don't drink coffee normally. I can't bear the taste of this concoction so I resort to drinking a double shot of espresso when I feel a migraine coming on.
Also, have your jaw checked out if you suffer from severe migraines....your jaw may be out of alignment. Cousin suffered terribly with migraines for years and saw top specialists in Italy about it, until she stumbled across this piece of info, had her jaw checked out, yes, she had a misaligned jaw, had it fixed and has been migraine free for nearly 12 years!

Any type of headache or the big M should be followed up with your Dr.Many things medically can cause severe headaches.An MRI can rule out some of the dangerous headaches caused by tomors,a weaken blood vessel and etc.A family member of my husbands refused to get checked and had a small tumor in his brain,he was lucky.He blamed his headaches on allergies.

It's true that stress can bring on a migraine headache but, it's more typical of a tension headache. For a migraine, the more specific factors include bright lights, noise and alcohol. According to a souce I found on the net, "Tension headaches are usually described as a continuous pressure pain or tightness of varying severity over the entire head, whereas migraine headaches are a severe, throbbing pain over one or both temples, or behind one eye or ear, and are often accompanied by nausea and vomiting." The description above describes exactly what I've experienced with migraines.

Emne: I get migraines as well..
and I have had them long enough that I can tell hours before if it is a migraine day.. I usually can ward them off with just Tylenol now.. been having them since I was 12.. the symptoms continue getting worse.. If I go into one.. and I am able to meditate along with the tylenol.. I can usually kick it out.. but, the after affects are now becoming more problemsome.. I end up with a dumb like feeling.. I have problems with my vision afterwards.. as well as my speech.. and this usually lasts for several hours..

When I say vision problems I mean white splotches, and I don't wear glasses.. my eyes test out fine.. and by speech.. I mean that I start studdering.. and loosing my train of thoughts..

I am alergic to both codine and asprin.. and anything that contains asprin..

Does anyone else show the same problems I have after the migraine?

27. Maj 2004, 18:09:34
I have had stress headaches.. I have also suffered migraines (thankfully i discovered the cause! well the doc did).. to me they are totally different... the stress ones went with medication in a few hours.. the migraines took days...

Emne: Imitrex
Anyone who has migraines and doensn't ask about imitrex (assuming they have severe doesn't work on just any headache) is missing out on a complete cure. It zaps the little suckers into never never land.

As for the shotgun approach, theoretically it would work, but you might not be able to enjoy the benefits the way you would if you simply used Imitrex.

OTOH, if you are a migraine headache to others, then the shotgun approach in reverse....better not go there. :)

Emne: Re: Migraine Cure
Personally I've suffered with Migraines for years. I've tried everything but nothing had ever helped. I usually suffered through with an icepack on my head, the lights out, and total quiet. Often I'd get sick to my stomach. They'd last 24 hours and often 48. But...the first time I took Imitrex my migraine was gone within 30 mins. Within an hour I was back up with no pain, just a bit groggy...more like foggy...but that's normal most days. It's a miracle drug.

It’s not over the counter but worth talking to the doctors about. A friend of mine takes the shots when she gets them. I use the nasal spray and they also come in pill form.
