Since having children I have suffered with migraines that are getting more and more regular. I worked out that they were in sync with my cycle so my GP suggested getting the implanol inserted which I did, but I am still getting them 5 months later.
On the migraine scale they are quite mild. It is just a very bad headache behind my right eye that usually lasts around 24 hours but can be up to 40 hours. I don't get nausea but strong light sensitivity.
Standard pain killers don't touch the pain except codeine. My GP has prescribed Maxalon which is the wafer thingo that you let melt on your tongue and tastes like toothpaste. Turns out that I need to take both Maxalon and codeine to have an effect and sometimes that doesn't do anything. The other thing I do is wrap a towel around my eyes really tightly - not sure but these seems to relieve some of the pain.
Tell me about your migraines, how often do you get them, what medication or remedies do you take and does it work?
