I have had very painful migraines now for 2 weeks and nothing will make it go away! They are so bad that I have to lay down most of the day. I've tried taking everything for them. Nothing seems to work. I am from the chicago area. Can anyone recommend a good physician for this problem in my area? Also, can anyone recommend a way to stop these pounding headaches? I am in alot of pain and need something-fast!
Belladonna is an excellent homeopathic medicine to get rid of acute migraine episodes. There are good remedies like sang can, sepia, spigelia etc. To see that the number of episodes to occur would gradually reduce in intensity and severity before subsiding completely.

Hope your are doing much better with your headaches!
Several years ago I found that going to a Chiropractor has helped. I had a migraine that felt like a vice grip for 3 weeks - non stop. After going to the chiropractor for 3 visits, it disappeared. Before that I was on so many pills, imatrx, codene, etc and nothing worked only the Chiro did. I just had a 2 week migraine due to stress and went to the chiro again and sure enough it went away. A neuro is not always the answer but you should not rule out. I had my eyes tested, and CAT scan done and nothing was found. They were going to send me to a neuro but I decided to try a chiropractor instead. The Chiro told me that if after a couple of weeks if it did not work, they wanted me to get more tests but low and behold after the 3rd visit both times it worked for me. I was willing to try anything. I know this post is old but perhaps it can help someone else.
I have had migraines that have lasted 3 weeks, and believe me you try everything! the best advise I can give is keep a diary of what you eat, where you go and how your head is feeling including any signs or indicators such as altered vision. as the triggers are different for each person, and therefore the treatment is also different, and keeping a diary will help Doctors and Neuro's to get a better understanding. I have tried all the common medications and some lesser known, with non working and am seeing a Neuro at the moment. Things to consider. Stay away from strong scents, such as perfumes and fresh flowers inside, eat more unprocessed foods, or ones that are lower in additives, as a lot of additives can be triggers, an additive code breaker book can list the same product in multiple forms and was a great help for me. Soy based products are also a major trigger, and finally stay away from strobing lights, if the frequecy is right you will get a migraine very quickly, and some sufferers can also experience black outs. When all else fails, I know that life has to go on, and you still have to live some form of life, a great help for me was fishing sun glasses that have an antiglare layer, they reduce the intensity of light bouncing of the ground and help to keep the migraine from getting worse if you do need to go out. I also have used Panadine Extra (15mg Codine) every 4-5 hours with Neurofen Migraine 2 hours after taking the panadine to get the pain under control and then back off to lower doses, this has helped me to reduce most of my migraines down to under a week in length, but check with your Doctor first!
Hope this helps!
i really suggest a neurologist and most likely an MRI or CT. in the short term what usually works for me is high dose of caffeine with benadryl or even darvocet. another thing that used to help was bc powder and dr pepper if it was really bad i would add benadryl with it. it always at least made it stop hurting esp until you see the doc
I've had a migraine for 5 weeks straight and it is still there. At first I didn't take medicine but it got unbearable so I started taking some 2 days ago but after the pain stop wears off the migraines come back worse. I actually slept for 2 days straight because it was so bad what should I do?
