Someone mentioned a homeopathic for migraines. Can you please relist that for me.

I'm on day five here and I'm about to lose it. The doctor couldnt give me anything...but I about to go the hospital and tell them I dont care if it goes through the placenta. I'm serious. I've never been in this much pain and I've delivered naturally four times. I NEVER take medication for anything. I need serious help.

i get migranes and trying very hard not to take painkillers for them like i would do if i wasn't pregnant,
at the moment rubbing lavander on my temples helps relax me especially if i do this just as i feel the headache is starting,


also i have these which work really well and my doctor is happy for me to use them in pregnancy

hope you find something that works for you

I've found that soaking my feet in really warm water (I normally use my foot bath and have the water as hot as it can be without burning myself) w/ lavender + a cold cloth on my forehead or neck (dependant on where the headache is stemming from) really helps sometimes... followed by a glass of herbal tea w/ lemon - but there are some headaches where I have no choice but to take tylonol migraine because otherwise I'll just end up in a ball on the floor crying.

Good luck
