Just a suggestion...

Everyone calls me crazy but it works.

When I get migraines which is often...I put a little bit of vicks vapor rub on my head and on the spots where it hurts and you won't believe the relief you feel

I use origins' peace of mind, which has a lot of mint essential oils in it. I think it probably does the same thing as vick's, but at a higher price! I also have a friend who applies a mixture of lavender and peppermint essential oils to her temples, which sounds wonderful.

I never have had any relief even with prescriptions with my migraines...And one day I had a cold too and put vicks on my nose to clear it up and I don't know but that just took my headache away so fast...It stinks a little but the relief is amazing...It is even better if you put a hot washcloth over the vicks on your forehead...You can feel it drawing out the pain...It's weird but it works fast...Everyone says i'm nuts but hey if it gets rid of the pain...I'll do it :)

Ooh, the hot washcloth over the vick's is a great idea. I'll try that when I get my next bad headache.
