I was diagnosed with migraines about two years ago. For a long time I was taking imitrex(sp?), but then I lost my health insurance and can no longer afford it. Is there anything over the counter or even a natural remedy that can really help? I've been having them a lot lately and the only thing that helps at all is turning all the lights off and getting in bed - which obviously I can't do this during the day so I just have to suffer through it while working. What can I do? TIA
ETA: when I have a migraine I always have extreme sensitivity to light and sound, as well as some nausea & dizziness
I started getting migraines in May and now I don't really get them anymore. I saw a chiropractor for awhile, gave up gluten, corn, and sugar, and increased my probiotic consumption through kefir, kombucha, and bubbies pickles.. So, I'm imagining mine were somehow related to my gut and candida, and maybe yours are too?
