I know this isn't parenting but there are a lot of women on this forum and migraines usually affect women..

I went to the ER a few nights ago for some back issues. My back flared up and its been rough the past few days.

They gave me percocet and valium, which helps so much.

But the back pain/strain is causing neck pain/strain which is giving me a migraine for the past 4 days....4 COUNT THEM 4!!!! I can't take it..

Its all right sided, behind my right eye and whole right side of my head down into the middle and ride side of my neck and it even makes my ear and jaw hurt....

Does anyone else suffer from migraines like this?
And what do you do for?

My mom just gave me a muscle relaxer and 2 advil...

Aleve, and I have a prescription for Imitrex. But the aleve sometimes works even by itself. Sounds like yours is super bad, don't know if that will work.

If the pain is still present tomorrow, under the circumstances of the headache I would consider a visit to a chiropractor (get recommendations from friends to be sure you're getting a good one) or a professional massage.

I used to have a lot of problems with lower back issues, neck issues (arthritis in both places) and migraines. Since I started working out at the gym four years ago I have had ONE migraine and my back issues have only flared ONCE. Something to think about!

Hope you feel better soon!

You need to go to a doctors and get him to refer you to a specialist.First you need them to determine what caused that backpain by checking with scans etc.Some injuries can be very serious with backpain that can be from the neck downward. I would get checked before going to any type of therpy as that could make it worse if its a actual disc etc.

If it's a true migraine and not a headache caused by muscle strain, Feverfew will help. You can buy it at any grocery with a "natural" section. I prefer the liquid form as it works quicker. My migraines go away in about 15 min.

I've had migraines since I was 7 or 8 years old. I know them when I have one and this has been a migraine a very bad one.

I take a prescription Zomig. You might want to see a chiropractor too. I get back and neck pain too, and it's usually relieved when I see mine. Good luck...I know they are terrible!
