Are you well hydrated? I would try cococnut water, iron and magnisium. How old is your baby?

Sandra Valdez

4 months. I may not be as hydrated as I need to be. I try to take an iron supplement every day because I'm very anemic.

Jessica Lowery

I was anemic while being pregnant,, it sucks:( I also took vitamin D as well as iron and ate a lot of fruit. I too got migraines, and when they were horrible I would take half of an excedrin.. I know it wasn't great to but they were unbearable:/

Do you drink caffeine? Some people drink caffeine and when they miss a day or 2 will get a horrible headache. Maybe since your bf. You need more iron. Tumeric and danielle mentioned. Mayne a tablespoon of raw honey. Lots more fluid. I hope your better soon. I've had them. I can't imagine dealing with one bf and taking care of the baby. Keep us posted.

Eat a couple Brazil nuts daily. They are a great source of magnesium, Calcium and iron. Plus it is loaded with selenium. You may also want to eat a few almonds daily. Almonds are loaded with b2/Riboflavin which will help prevent or shorten migraines.

Feverfew in pill form?

Jessica Lowery 3 years

I take it in a capsule, I think the company is called Nature's Way. Depending how bad i feel, 2-3 caps first dose. If 20-30min later i don't feel better i take another. That usually does it

Have you tried peppermint oil on your neck & forehead & temples?

Victoria Childers

I haven't. I know peppermint dries up milk, but I don't know bout oil.

Jessica Lowery 3 years

My eyes got big when I read peppermint. I felt like I was in a cartoon. Too bad it can dry our supply. I guess it's good if our LOs decide to wean cold turkey.

Have your B12 count checked

Debra Temple

I haven't. I take b12 for energy. Possible I'm taking too much?

Jessica Lowery 3 years

I take it for Crohn's disease. I read that lack of can result in migraines. I take shots.

Debra Temple 3 years

I've never taken b12 regularly. Migraines are a regular in my family, but I haven't had one like this is so long

Jessica Lowery 3 years

I used to have them a lot. I'm also a huge advocate for accupressure.

Debra Temple 3 years

I've never tried that. I use to have to go to a sports therapist and he would have to pop vertebrae in my neck to make them go away, but that was when 10 years ago

Try an oil pull

Put ice on the back of your neck. Take Epsom salts baths three times a week - one cup of Epsom salts, a tub full of water, and get as much of yourself as you can into the water to soak for twenty minutes, but right now, put ice on the back of your neck. It's even better if you mist a bath towel with water, put it in the freezer for ten minutes, and wrap it around your head to hold a bag of peas or a sports ice ice pack on the back of your neck. Should be gone in fifteen minutes or less - at which point get yourself into the tub... With Epsom salts.

Thank you! I'll try that when I get home.

Jessica Lowery Poor girl! Hang in there!

Jean Lay 3 years

Lol thank you. I'm bout ready to make my husband give me a mommy day of nothing but sleep lol

Jessica Lowery 3 years

I chalked it up to lack of sleep because my 1.5 year old has been rowdy and my 4 month hasn't slept much at all lately. I'll try all that. I'm bout to straight up kill over lol. I'm bout to pluck my eyeball out haha. I'm not much of a caffeine drinker but I tried it anyway just to test it and i still have it. I've been taking naproxen. I'm not all sure what's safe to take and not affect my baby.

Sleep can play a big part. When I was in college, working full time and had a boyfriend, I was getting them weekly. After college, they went away on their own. Stress also factored in.

Ginger helped me.

Rosemary Vaughn

Blackstrap molassas and greens for iron
magnesium
pink salt, lemon and water ina shot glass
Remember headaches mostly stem from dehydration. Magnesium is seriously the best

Heather Garner

I will certainly try that! Thank you :):)

Jessica Lowery 3 years

I add it to my soup, or add it to my juice! I haven't had one since I started juicing again.

Heather Garner 3 years

You can get concentrated Turmeric tablets with pepper. That works. Juice some ginger and celery juice and add to anything you like. If you are willing to go big pharma - Good old 100mg of Diclofenac will do the trick. I would however go see a chiropractor if you can afford one.

Rita Burr

Lol I'm not. I'll try one thing at a time. Day 4 of migraine. Day 3 of my 4 month old not sleeping well and day 2 of getting kicked by a toddler ha.

Jessica Lowery

Good luck.

Rita Burr

Ok this isn't something you have in your home but there are some supplements that are helping people with migraines. They help with balancing sugar and other body stresses. So if you have them often this could be good for you. We take them for other health reasons but they did get rid of the headaches I was having but I don't have migraines just we having regular headaches.

What are they?
