Well, it sounds like you have a lot of tension, since you are having pain in your neck and shoulders. That could be causing your migraines or could be caused by your migraines. If you are having migraines weekly, you need to see a doctor. The doctor can prescribe something that WILL work better than otc meds. I have used Imitrex in the past. As for the tension in your neck and shoulders, try massage therapy. It can work wonders. You can even tell the massage therapist what your problems are, and they can target that specific area. May even help with your headaches. BUT, if you are having them that often, you really should see a doctor. There could be an underlying cause that could be serious. Good luck!
