Some people worry about the IV therapy costs but when you consider the positive impact that it has on your quality of life, it’s definitely worth it. Having a regular IV treatment will make a very significant difference to your pain levels, so you can get on with your life. 

Temperature Therapy

A hot compress, on the other hand, will relax tense muscles and give you relief. Applying a hot or cold compress to the back of the neck when you feel a migraine coming on can make a huge difference, even if it doesn’t provide long term relief. Hot showers and baths are often very effective as well. 

Drink Some Caffeine 

Drinking a lot of caffeine can actually cause headaches, so you might think that it’s best avoided if you have a migraine. However, a small amount of caffeine can actually give you some relief. If you drink a cup of coffee in the early stages of the migraine, it can prevent the pain. It also increases the effectiveness of some pain relief drugs, like aspirin. Just make sure that you only have one caffeinated drink because too many will make the pain worse.

Many people that get migraines find that certain foods trigger them and make the pain worse. If you can identify what those trigger foods are and avoid them, it’s a lot easier to manage your migraines. If you start a food diary and note down when you get migraines, you should be able to pick out a pattern and work out what your trigger foods are.
