If you’ve ever had one, then you know they suck. Throbbing pain, head pressure, upset stomach, stabbing discomfort… generally debilitating.
I had one yesterday. I had the dubious luck to get the blinding peripheral vision auras first and knew what was coming. I got myself some ibuprofen first, began drinking water, caffeine, and eating chocolate. Second, I rushed home from work and grabbed my sexy flashes salve.
This was my first true experimentation. I did have a friend tell me that it helped her and while her headache wasn’t eliminated (because honestly, not even modern medicine has that figured out) the symptoms were significantly enhanced.
I knew I needed to cool down. I threw my work clothes off, cracked a few windows and laid down with my eyes closed, but not too tight because it pulls and leaves my skull want to explode.
The lid slipped off and I rubbed it along my temples, and forehead. It was smooth and did not pull, so step one of the encounter was complete. I rubbed fairly firmly along my temple and up into my hair and then over my eyebrows. I continued down along the sides and bridge of my nose, careful to avoid my eyes; essential oils will cause a burning sensation.
The relief wasn’t instantaneous, but the combination of ibuprofen and salve got rid of the throbbing in my temples and behind my eyes. I was glad that it worked…
I applied it a couple more times since I liked the experience of massaging my aching skull and my symptoms were gone through the evening.
This morning when I woke, I could feel it hanging around, lurking. I gulped down some more ibuprofen and packaged both hot and cold salves for work.
At Melboune FL Wildlife Removal, I felt the pain coming, but I was cold sweating a little. My hands, feet, and nose felt cold. Out came the cold migraine salve. I did the same massage techniques and it felt very nice. The scent of the salve was also very nice and relaxing.
If anyone has had a similar experience or needs advice on which salve is best, or simply wants to tell me how much migraines suck… Speak To Me. I want to hear your voice. I am not a doctor, not claim to have a cure… rather only saying what’s worked for me.
