Despite the extreme discomfort migraines give, it is possible to obtain symptomatic relief at least to some extent. Here are a few tips at what can be done should you be in the grips of a migraine attack. However, it is important to keep in mind that the priority is get a medical help and consultation at the earliest. The tips below are to serve only till you are able to see a doctor.


• Excruciating pain

Pain may be tackled with NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drugs) ibrufen, naproxen, diclofenac sodium, etc. It may also be managed by analgesics such as paracetamols, aspirins etc. However, it is recommended that you take any one of them as per the dosage and instructions on the label after a light meal of complex carbohydrates or some non-acidic foods. It is important that painkillers be taken at the first signs of migraine. Putting an ice pack on the painful area also helps. (1)

• Nausea

Nausea may be tackled with taking of anti-emetic along with the analgesic in the prescribed dosage. It is also important to not stay on an empty stomach for long durations. A light snack taken frequently helps in stubbing the queasiness and helps by utilising the excessive bile migraineurs release during attack episodes.

• Visual Aura

The best way to manage a visual aura is to stop or put down what you are doing and stand until you can get to a place where you can sit or lay down. It is dangerous to operate any machinery or drive at such times. Breathing in deeply and fully massaging the temples with a balm may aid temporarily.
