Thread: Crippling Migraine - any OTC help?

    Crippling Migraine - any OTC help?

    Hello HCG'ers! I'm having quite a bit of difficulty with my VLCDs so far. I have a past history of migraines, but haven't gotten one in nearly three years, after I started refines eliminating sugars from my diet. I occasionally feel a bad headache coming on when I've skipped a meal, but a preemptive Aleve and food generally take care of that. (I don't know why it didn't occur to me that the migraines would return when going on a drastic calorie reduction diet. Very stupid, I know.

    Anyway, I was fine at the end of my VLCD1, just sleepy. I went to bad early and work up in the middle of the night with a full-blown killer migraine. Visual symptoms, nausea, the pounding headache, etc. I don't have any RX meds on hand, and I see the doctor on Wed pm. But in In the meantime, the migraine hasn't subsisted. I'm basically curled up in the dark near the bucket. (I'm pretty convinced my weight lost so far on this diet isn't abnormal fat because of all this.)

    I was already on magnesium/potassium from before the migraine set in, but upped the dosage my half. Aleve and Excedrin haven't done a thing. I'm in VLCD4 now, and a few hours ago I skipped my HCG dosage for the day, with no affect so far. Any recommendations for OTC remedies? I basically only feel relief after I've thrown up and that's pretty short-lived and just really wrecking my body.

    A migraine is not uncommon the first week. Migraines are basically hormonal and this is a hormone protocol but things level out after the first week usually. Sorry this is happening! I suffered for migraines for decades until I got on bioidentical hormones so I know what you're going through. Try putting your feet in water as hot as you can stand and put ice on the back of your neck. That sometimes helps.

    I'll give that a try. Though I have no ice, I have plenty of frozen foods I'm not allowed to eat on P2. I'll put some packs of frozen peas to good use!

    Thank you!

    That totally took the edge off, thanks Grammy! No more pounding, no more nausea, and I even fell asleep. That's a truly fantastic home remedy.

    Glad it helped! If it's not completely gone after another dose of ibuprofen, try it again.
