I have one of these. It's nice, but I do wish the ice pack parts were softer. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FGWLDR6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_taa_hE6sDb6CKVSSC

I finally couldn't take it anymore and they gave me Ajovy (the monthly injection) and I haven't had ONE migraine since. It's a miracle. Other than that, Aleve, the headache hat, and diet coke

u/gold3nhour · 3 pointsr/migraine

Fellow migraineur, here! I agree with you. It’s not a competition and I make sure people around me are informed of what migraines actually are—NOT “just a headache.” We learn to live in spite of the pain, period.

I always had migraines and they got worse after I had a (hemorrhagic) stroke. Long story, but the short version is I had a brain aneurysm we didn’t know I had, until it ruptured and nearly killed me. I was in my mid 20s when I had a subarachnoid hemorrhage, a type of stroke, which is not the same as an ischemic stroke although either one is a seriously life threatening and life altering event! I am VERY blessed and grateful to be alive and function as well as I do. I know I seem “normal,” but oh is that so false!

I’ve had neuropsychological evaluations, so many diagnostic tests, medical bills and records to show just how real this invisible illness is. With that said, I don’t spend time or energy I don’t have to spend, trying to convince someone I’m in severe pain. It’s just not worth it! I totally understand the frustration, though.

I’ve had chronic migraines ever since my emergency brain surgery, and along with now having an acquired brain injury, I’ve had to make myself find a way to keep going! It’s very much do or die, and most days it feels like do even though I feel like I’m dying.

I’m seven and a half years out, next week, and I can say with 100% confidence, it’s very possible to look “normal” while you’re falling apart inside. You just find a way to keep moving.

One suggestion I learned from lurking this sub for over a year before I even joined Reddit, the headache hat!!! I’ve been on 13 medications (very much trial and error—felt like a science experiment sometimes) since February 2012, and thankfully Aimovig works well for me so far, but NOTHING has helped the way this has. I am down to three medications, two preventatives, one rescue.

Sometimes the headache hat by itself is just what I need to relax and relaxing allows me to reset my mind by not focusing so much on the pain.

It’s so difficult to relax when you’re in pain and are so tired of it, I know. The little things like this really do help! I even made sure my neurologist knew to please share this with other patients. It has been a huge help to me!

Link to the headache hat on amazon:

And if anyone needs a way to keep a record of migraines, the MigraineBuddy app (learned about it in this sub too) is awesome!

Hope this can help someone else, too. I’m glad this sub exists because it validates so much and it helps to share stories and know you’re not alone.

Y’all take care!

I tried to link it but it wouldn’t work so you’ll need to copy and paste that

u/Ashleyg05 · 2 pointsr/pregnant

Same.... heres a link to a product i had my husband get me. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00FGWLDR6/ref=mp_s_a_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1526306617&sr=8-3&keywords=headache+head+wrap

I think this in combo with tyenol and a dark room gets me thru. <3

u/Lysmerry · 2 pointsr/cfs

Sure I'm happy to answer! I'm sorry you got it so young. Also that you fought so hard to keep on performing- that must have been really baffling and upsetting. I was lucky in that I knew what I had almost immediately due to my dad having something similar. I think it's healthy that we're retaining muscle tone, but may be causing symptoms because of its metabolic needs. Though I always take CFS theories with a grain of salt, Dr. Myhill's work has corresponded the best with my own experience- you can see her writing on what she believes are the metabolic causes of CFS: http://www.drmyhill.co.uk/wiki/CFS_-_The_Central_Cause:_Mitochondrial_Failure

As for the diagnosis, it depends what you mean by official. My main MD agrees and has written down that I have it, but I don't have any special paperwork. I basically talked it out with my doctor. I was concerned I had it because I was very tired and had intense PEM, and my father has similar issues so I knew about it. My doctor ran many many tests for alternatives, all that I personally researched and requested, and they came back negative. Basic blood tests, sleep apnea, thyroid, lyme disease, STDs, hormones and later an MRI which ruled out Lupus and MS. I sort of diagnosed myself? My doctor was a General Practitioner, not a specialist. He is a very intelligent man, but he let me decide for myself and agreed with me that it was most likely I had CFS. I've done most of my own research and decided what action to take on my own, because very few MDs know much if anything about CFS. However, I have been believed for the most part. I think a Neurologist would be more trusted than an GP for an 'official' diagnosis, but there are so many symptoms and potential causes that I feel more comfortable with a GP.

Where do you live? I live the USA and getting disability is very challenging, usually relying on a very specific test.

I've had CFS for three years. I also had a brief spell six years ago that lasted 3 months. It started with what I believe was Mono (it showed up on a test that I had had it). However that ended. My current bout came after a very serious four month depressive episode (the 3rd in my life) but no physical illness.

I hope this helps! If you have any more questions feel free to ask. I haven't had any tests in a while, but will try a few just in case. I suddenly stopped being able to drink without feeling odd, so I'm going to get my liver checked, and also check for H.Pylori, a very common bacteria, because I've become more interested in the "2nd nervous system" located in the gut.

I really recommend ginger for nausea (ginger ale or ginger beer with real ginger is great, I also use pills and chews). It's the only thing that has actually helped me. I don't get headaches much, but I have this silly thing called a 'headache hat' and I love it.

Do you have shooting pains in the limbs or joint pain? I also have fibromyalgia and have some tips for you if you have it too. I've found colostrum (I take it in lactoferrin) helpful for muscle pain in general.

u/elynwen · 2 pointsr/migraine

This sucks. So fucking much. I’ll tell you that I know that list, except for Kratom.

The thing that dulls pain for me the most are benzodiazepines, barbiturates and the migraine hat. It wraps around and keeps your head on ice for an hour or so. I bought 4 and rotate them. Honestly, it’s such a relief compared to the many drugs we’ve taken.

Here is a link to the headache hat. . I hope it helps, if you try.

u/Tupley_ · 2 pointsr/braincancer

Thank you so much for responding!!! I really appreciate it! And I'm glad to hear that you did very well immediately after your surgery.

So, just to sum up:

  • In the hospital: nice pillows, soft sweaters, earbuds and music, medication tracker sheet, lattes and other comfort food? Were there foods that you would strongly recommend against?
  • At home: wedge shaped pillow, bendy straws, elastogel ice helmet (or some kind of helmet for migraines), scarves and hats? Thank you for the ice helmet tip, I think I will buy the Headache Hat (the Elastogel ice helmet is not sold in my country). Are there any other products that you think would be helpful? Any specific type of painkillers? Any house/furniture setup that might be helpful (i.e. would an angled armchair be useful?)
  • Other important things: being silly, enthusiastic and cheering her up if needed

    And can I ask, if you don't mind, what are the headaches and cognitive stuff you dealt with that prevented you from going back to work? Do you feel the quality of your life has drastically suffered? If you were in this situation (a bit older, with children in their early 20s, very little family/social support), what long-term advice would you give to your kid?
u/wordymslotsofwords · 2 pointsr/infertility

I also suffer from migraines and really struggled during treatment.

I found my migraines were at their worse at the beginning of new medication (estrogen, progesterone, gonadotropins... didn't matter, they all sucked), but lessened after the first week. Hopefully this will be the case for you, too. My RE said Sumatriptan (Imitrex) is safe to take during treatment and pregnancy if this is a medication that helps you. My PCP recommended daily magnesium supplements (400mg), which I do believe reduced the frequency of my migraines. I also bought a headache hat so I could at least be mobile during migraines. I loved it so much I bought a second.

Sorry you're going through this, but hope some of these suggestions help!

u/Omfgjustpickaname · 2 pointsr/migraine

I love my headache hat. It’s cubes so there are small patches without relief because it’s not one giant ice cube. It stays cold for probably 2-3 hours. I’m considering getting another so I’ll have more time with them. When that gets too warm though I’ll take some gel ice packs and tuck them under a stretchy bandana headband thing. That works well but the gel packs I have last 20 minutes tops


u/Kdrishe · 1 pointr/skyrimvr

After having frequent migraine headaches for a while, I bought a couple of freezer-pack headbands.

One epiphany later, I found they also work great for staying cool in VR (not appearance-wise), but it's a bit more complicated to put the headset on-top of the headband.

Also, I find the added forehead support helps to take weight off of my dainty face.

Here's a link to one I bought.

The stitching is coming apart after almost two years (not bad), but there are a few others for sale.

u/velvet_thunder19 · 1 pointr/migraine

Headache helmet!


Edit: removed stuff that had smells to them!

u/rn8650 · 1 pointr/leaves

I just bought a "headache hat" on Amazon that works really well for me. Basically a headband full of tiny ice packs. I just recently realized that cold/ice therapy works really well to curb my headaches. If you don't want to spend the 40$ just a ziplock bag with some ice cubes works pretty well too.

I have The Headache Hat that my boyfriend refers to as, "The Turban of Pain." It's amazing and I don't know how I've lived with migraines for so long without it.

This is also in the realm of drugs, but more of a natural, or a controversial, remedy depending on how you look at it. I sniff tobacco, called "snuff" or what South American cultures call rapé (pronounced, ra-pAY). This is helpful when I get a headache near my eyes or in my sinus areas. It's completely stopped migraines from developing. I can answer some questions if you're curious about it.

I also use a mouth guard at night that I had made at my dentist. It helps protect the nerves in my teeth/face from getting irritated when I grind my teeth. I don't sleep without it.

Rocky Mountain Oil company has a Migraine Support blend that I've found works better than other essential oil companies/MLM's. You can either get the one linked there and dilute 20-30 drops of it with fractionated coconut oil in a glass roller bottle (make sure it has a metal roller - plastic will dilute in the oils), or purchase the roller they sell for $15.

u/taswind · 1 pointr/migraine

Dunno which one is best, but there are a bunch of "migraine hats" available... Would let you "wear" your icepacks

u/mavalon · 1 pointr/migraine

Thanks for sharing! I just received this ice pack strap thing that didn't work for me very well. I need it to sit right in the crook of my neck below my skull and it didn't do that.
I might try the migraine cap or The Original Headache Hat
Or this one: Elasto-Gel Cranial Cap Not sure why the guy's shirt is off, but I like that it also covers the neck.

u/claricia · 1 pointr/migraine

Wearing a Headache Hat right now. I'm going to buy another one next month, and am also entertaining the idea of a third. I know you can buy extra ice squares, but I'm not going to want to take them out and put them back in when I have a migraine.
