Hi there'

I use a combination of a 4Head stick, cold water compress bith on my forehead and the back of my neck and lying in a completely dark room.

The stick works on the pain, the cold compresses work on the dilated blood vessels and the darkened room is much gentler on my eyes.

Some take longer than others to go, but generally this combination seems to do the trick or at least make it more bearable.

(((hugs))) to you

Sudden bad migraines were the first "official" symptom of FM that I had and they became chronic over 3-4 months. However, with betablockers and 30mg Amitryptyline a day they are under control. I still get them and the weird neuro things that go with them, the heavy red face on one side, difficulty finding the word I want and pain on one side of head but they are much more "distant" and not acutely sore.
