Am sorry you are suffering and hope you feel better soon. Have you tried migraleave, any of of the triptans - these need to be prescribed. I had an attack at work and someone gave me a can of coke. I don’t drink coke but was so desperate I drunk it very quickly and I got some relief. When the nausea is bad and moving feels like you are having motion sickness - sprite helps. Pressing pressure points on your head is also good and try and stay. Avoid all the pain killers as they actually make it worse. Unfortunately you have to try different things. Wish you well. Let us know how you get on.🙏🏾

Do migraines last longer than a week? I’m wondering if it’s something else ..

When I go to the ER they give me a cocktail of drugs and it works everything. Benadryl, Anti-inflamamtory, and muscle relaxer and imitrix. This is always done IV but you could try it at home. I also would really recommend hydration by drinking lots of water.

Take care
