    Turn off all electronics, shut the window curtains, take Advil, aspirin, Motrin, whatever pain killer you have, and lay down in the bed. If you're lucky you'll fall asleep and feel better afterwards.

    Note, this doesn't always work for me and sometimes you just lay there completely miserable, but sometimes you can actually fall asleep.

    Drink water with electrolytes (add some table salt). Go to bed and make sure the room is quiet and dark. Keep a bucket next to the bed if you need to... well... Then just sleep it off.

    acetaminophen 200 mg
    aspirin 250 mg
    caffeine 65 mg

    It's the standard formulation of most OTC migraine medicines.
    Works out to be 1 dose of Tylenol, 1 dose of Aspirin, and 1/2 a No-Doz (approx.)

    Caffiene always fixed my migraines.... then I realized it was the withdrawals causing them. Gave up caffeine, felt horrible for a month... then no headaches


    I always lay down with an ice pack on my forehead... sometimes a second one on back of my neck/head. This was the "prescription" by a chiropractor I visited a long time ago. The one on my forehead usually gets pushed into my eye sockets to super cool the eyeballs, and block all light.

    Usually a radio on VERY quietly... otherwise I just hear a ringing or buzzing in my head. :crazy:

    My partner gets them a couple of times a year.

    I block al light coming in to the room. Dose her up on Disprin. Paracetamol and its derivatives don't work for her. I then let her sleep.

    I also put a door chime button in her room in case she needs me.

    Gee I'm good

    You're running about 0.6*F low of normal if you're only hitting 98*F.
