I've always had headaches, but now this. Over the past few years, I've started getting migraines, and since then I've been gradually been getting them more and more frequently. My neurologist has given me a prescription for Maxalt, which usually works if I have one with me to consume. But on days where I wake up with ine, or I just don't have any with me, I'm fucked. Aside from the pills, I try to remember vitamin D.

Is there anything I can do to ease any of the various pains or vomiting? Force my body to digest the foods in my stomach? Or more I can do to prevent them from happening in the first place? I'm losing my social life because of it, and losing money because I'd have to call in to work if I wake up with one. Please help.

My doc just straight up gives me low dosage oxycodone. They don't always work for migraines, but I find pre-emptively taking them if I feel one coming on during the day will at least allow me to function fundamentally at work or whatever. It's hard to say OP, migraines really differ from person to person.

i started taking kratom recreationally and it honestly fixed my migraines a lot i have been having them a lot less. i have only had one or two times where it directly cured my migraine after it happened though but it hink it does prevent them because i have been getting a lot less.

while I dont suffer from migraines, I suggest kratom to try and fix it as well. it cant hurt. it lowers blood pressure and has opioid alkaloids so it seems like it might be a decent, temporary solution.

been taking it for 5 years for chronic pain and its an amazing drug.

Well for me, I've been prescribed maxalt, which I'm supposed to take the same way you're taking your oxycodone. Pre-emptively take it if I feel one coming on, it takes care of it after a bit, usually. It works well enough. Even if I take the maxalt mid-migraine, it seems to make it go away but it still takes several hours, wheras if I didn't take it, it'd last all day.

How exactly do you suggest I go about implementing kratom into my life then? Just make it a standard part of my morning routine, like putting a bit in my coffee or something? Similar to how I take two oxcarbazapines every morning to ensure I don't have any seizures that day, which works? We sell Kratom where I work so I have easy access to it plus discounts which is nice. What strains and dosages should I be using?

Gabapentin is worth a shot. I remember reading a report on Erowid about gabapentin fixing some woman's migraine which I can't find now but I found this other one: https://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=110476.
Also that "weirdo" who studied dolphin language, John C. Lilly, stated that Ketamine cured his migraines permanently.
Maybe you can try a strong ketamine trip, I would for sure.
Another one about gabapentin also mentions 5-HTP: https://www.erowid.org/experiences/exp.php?ID=102123.
For preventing them when you feel one coming you can look into drotaverine but I'm not sure that's available in the USA.

the only logical solution to this is to eat past the point of throwing up and continue to do so to develop a pattern. let me guess op a fuckton of nicotine??

Meaning you use nicotine a lot? I think nicotine 'smoking' can make some folks more likely to barf. Try this, listerine breath strips, only listerine brand as well the mouthwash should do as well to stop strong nausia in mere moments when I would use nicotine, smoke.

There are anti-nausea drugs. Zofran is one, it's expensive. If you have insurance and a Dr. ask for it or something similar. Quit smoking if you smoke. Cigs are nothingness. Chewing tobacco as well. Migraines, seem to come along with nausea, so possibly defeating or lessening nausea, may decrease migraines as well. Even if one seems to be the cause of the other.

That would explain why I have no desire to smoke or vape when I'm in the middle of a migraine. I mean even sometimes I'll want to grab my vape or a cig instinctively, but then I'm just like oh my god no thank you.

Nicotine, the best time to fully quit smoking is when one does not feel so good. Shezze, known many people who have friends that literally died from smoking. Family. Pot, does something, unless one is a constant burnout I guess. Nicotine is a corporate death scam where one could assume, the corporate executives, get around a 8 10 thousand dollar table to talk $$. Surely there is no smoking allowed in these corporate spaces.

Migraines, horrible feeling. Hope it all works out for you.

It's interesting that all of the replies on 420chan's /med/ are recommending various drugs to address Therm0's issue. Maybe that's more indicative of our pill culture than of this website's drug culture, but I'm high and rambling and don't have a point.

Therm0ptic, I'll tell it to you straight. We've been through a lot of rough times together. There was that time you were thinking about buying a drum set, that time you had to ban that guy, and then there was that time when you ran out of pokeballs. And now here we are.

There's no easy way to say this, so all I can ask is that you give it a shot for 20 days before passing judgment, no less. If what you're going through is as bad as it sounds, then 20 days of this will be worth the lifestyle change, though it may not be easy, depending on how versatile you are at cooking. I recommend you avoid animal products for 20 days- no meat (including fish), dairy, eggs, nothing. Not only that, but try and get the majority of your calories from a variety of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Avoid processed foods and animal products (and maybe exercise a bit too if you don't) and in 20 days, I bet your migraines and headaches will be gone.

Another thing worth mentioning, is that your headaches may be caused by grinding your teeth, either while conscious or asleep. A mouth guard would be an effective way to stop the pain if that's the cause.

I suppose drumming could cause it too if you play loudly enough and don't wear ear protection.

Thanks a lot, my dude. I'm definitely considering this to see what happens. I mean Migraines really fucking suck.
Also my drums are electronic so I'm in charge of the volume.

That's what you think, but the dark truth is that you'll never develop your fine dynamics unless you practice on a real kit.

You're a slave to technology, not a master of it! or something

But I'm not trying to mimic acoustic drums. I want sounds I form from scratch. It's its own thing. I've had an acoustic kit for over a decade, my guy.

That's a fair point. I was just rambling and high tbh. I used to play an acoustic drum set for 12 years, then an electric one for 8, and now I don't play anything.

Did you have any luck with the migraines though?

Actually since making this thread, I've only had a couple migraines and I caught them with the Maxalt in time to prevent them from getting painful and ruining my day. So I stopped freaking out about it, so my plan is to try your thing after 4th of July, because we're hosting a party, my gf makes amazing food, and I want all the fucking delicious meat and cheese related things she makes that day. I'm going to gorge one last big time before I try this.
inb4 I get a migraine on July 5th

And yes I admit it is a pitiful way for me to excuse procrastinating this, but I'm a weak-willed glutton.

No. But she also wears bell bottoms and oversized circle sunglasses and her favorite musician is Janis Joplin so that should answer your question anyway.

Lsd and mushrooms will decimate migraines for months after a single moderate dose.

Even Janis Joplin fans are limited to pretty much nothing. The sound recordings were at best low quality.

Hey OP I didn't read the thread at all but I know that psilocybin mushrooms can help with migraines. Ever considered them? Maybe tell your doc about it. They probably have heard of it.
