Are you sure they're migraines? Migraines have a very specific set of symptoms, not just head pain. These usually include nausea with or without vomitting, visual disturbances like seeing spots and auras around lights, sensitivity to light and sound, and pain more on one side of the head than the other. Alot of people call all bad headaches migraines, thinking that this is merely a term of severity. Women are prone to migraines during ovulation and again right before their period starts. Food sensitivities can cause migraines and the worst offenders are cheese (especially sharp or aged cheese like cheddar and parmesan), nuts (especially peanuts), wine, grapes, MSG, Nutrasweet (also called aspartame), caffeine, chocolate (especially dark chocolate). If your doctor suspects food triggers, you will go on a diet to eliminate these things then add them back in one at a time to see what might cause the migraines. But you can do this yourself without a doctor's direction. Keep a journal of everything you eat or drink and how you feel each day. Also, bad headaches can be caused by vision that needs correction, lack of water (you need half your body weight in ounces at least each day), over heating, high blood pressure, among many other things. Drink lots of water. Keep track of your mentrual cycle so you know when you're due to start, etc. Keep a food/drink journal and keep track of your symptoms daily. It took me about a year of careful watching to figure out what things trigger my migraines and also what kinds of treatments work and don't work.

ou may want to check your settings on all your digital items that you are using. Each device you use has a warning that MANY COMPLETELY IGNORE. Go under your settings for your screen settings on your computer, laptops, televisions, monitors, digital games, etc. AND LOWER THE BRIGHTNESS ON THE SCREEN. Also, don't forget that all these items are a heat source and depending on how close you are to the item you are using, you are affecting your personal body sources. (ie. flickering lights affect the eyes, laptops on laps affect fluids. etc.) You may be completely dehydrated if you aren't drinking adequates amounts of water daily. Here's a guide to help you figure out how much water you require daily for your weight. ? Your Weight Times (.5) Equals Divided By 8oz (or 1 Cup) Equals # Cups of Water/Day • 150lbs x .5 = 75/8 = 9 Cups of Water/day • 175lbs x .5 = /8 = 11 Cups of Water/day • 200lbs x .5 = 100/8 = 12.5 Cups Water/day I find taking my medication (excederin tension headache works better than excederin migraine) with a Monster drink or red bull with the extra caffeine, but not the whole can...just enough to swallow the pill and wash it down with a few extra gulps only. It works fast (20 minutes). For some reasons, when the medication says TENSION HEADACHE it helps more. Others take ROBAXACET which is acetominophen with methocarbonal also comes with Codeine when asked. If you use feverfew daily at bedtime. I also find it helpful to use something that I haven't used before or for a long time in a different family of medications. 1. I used to use a combination of medications which included 400mg Ibuprofen 4x a day with food. This takes the swelling and inflammation down. DO NOT exceed1600mg in one day and you may need prilosec for stomach protection as ALL ANTI INFLAMMATORIES are difficult on the stomach. ***You can use Tylenol with Ibuprofen and Aspirin watch for daily maximums & don't exceed. 2. Robaxacet is Tylenol (acetominophen) combined with methocarbonal (muscle relaxant)...this also comes with codeine on request from the pharmacist. This only relaxes any tight muscles around the pain and helps reduce some pain. You can use Robaxacet with Ibuprofen and Aspirin, BUT NOT Tylenol as it's already an ingredient in this pill. 3. Robaxacyl is Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) combines with methocarbonal (muscle relaxant)...this has a blood thinning active ingredient and isn't ideal for anyone under age 16 years or complications with blood pressure, ailments, etc. This both takes down the inflammation as well as treats the pain.You can use Robaxacyl with Ibuprofen and Tylenol, BUT NOT Aspirin as it's already an ingredient in this pill. ------------------------------... 4. Aleve is a Nonsteroidal Anti Inflammatory (Naproxen) which will helps reduce the inflammation, and as the inflammation decreases so does the pain; BUT you CANNOT mix this drug with any of the above mentioned safely. 5. Dynamint has been used on horses legs for years, but it does an amazing job on sore neck muscles. It's ingredients are Peppermint Oil, Eucalyptus Oil , Tea Tree Oil and Calendula Oil. 6. Deep Cold Gold is an alternative rub that works very well on tight aching tendons on your upper shoulders, neck and TMJ joints. It sounds more like it would be a MIGRAINE or AURAS (flickering lights or spots in eyes) associated with MIGRAINES or TENSION HEADACHE. Many things can trigger a HEADACHES/MIGRAINES: using your arm in an awkward way (bowling) when you don't normally do that, lack of food (skipping meals), head resting in a hairdressers sink, going to a concert with light show, video game screen with fast movements & flashing lights, staring in the light (sun) constantly on your eyes...etc. If you experience a headache with ANY LOSS OF WEAKNESS, SLURRING, IMBALANCE or FEVER, then you need to seek medical attention immediately for a consult to make sure there isn't something more serious going on. The ears are either tension from stress or tension stress from your TM joint in your jaw. It can make you sickly with migraines if out of place even a smidge. When I was 16 years old I had severe tension headaches that made the ligament behind my ear pop out like a big ole bump. The doctor prescribed a low dose of Elavil (amitryptaline) & it was gone within days. The Elavil in high doses is used for depression but they use it for car accidents because it relaxes the muscles from whiplash. I hope you can find some relief. PLEASE BE CAREFUL WITH THE EXTRA CAFFEINE DRINKS. A teenager should not be consuming even 1 can a day. If you are drinking this regularly, please see your doctor for help to stop them as they can create WITHDRAWAL EFFECTS..

If you are taking pain meds everyday it can cause rebound headaches, and they are usually worse than the original headache. You should go to the Dr most likely it is nothing more than a migraine, but could be something more. There are a lot of medication options now days, so go talk to your Dr, and if you have access go to a chiropractor, it has helped me a lot.

Stress, lack of sleep, pregnancies cause migraines. It could be something more serious so definitely go get checked out. It could be a number of things, so go to the doctor.

Sometimes migraines can be caused by changes in barometric pressure. A good cure....so I've read...is rosemary tea.

A magnesium deficiency can cause migraines and a magnesium deficiency can actually be caused by too much calcium as the calcium could be absorbed preferentially at the expense of magnesium.
