Home Remedies To Help Manage Migraine
Dec 2018

People who get migraines often have a miserable experience. A headache of varying intensity accompanied by nausea makes days unbearable. As it spirals, an individual loses focus and attention completely. Among the common risk factors, family history is the major cause and women are more likely to have migraines than men. Although there is no permanent cure for migraines, it can be managed by treating the symptoms. So here are a few home remedies that may help provide relief from a migraine headache.

Use An Ice Pack
Using an ice pack on your forehead, scalp and neck might provide some relief from the throbbing pain. You can also try wiping your head and neck with a cloth rinsed in cold water, as cooling these areas may offer relief from throbbing pain.

Dose Of Caffeine
Have a cup of coffee or tea. An ingredient called caffeine found in coffee and tea may offer you mild relief. If you are taking migraine drugs, the caffeine dose also helps in absorbing it faster. Caffeine also provides relief from frequent headache and fatigue.

Find A Dark And Quiet Room
Try to avoid bright light and noises as it could worsen the symptoms. Find a spot that is calm and quiet when you have a migraine, to speed up recovery.
