I'm new here and found this site this morning when looking for advice. Yesterday I spent the whole day in bed with a severe migraine . I avoided all caffeinated drinks thinking that they would make things worse. This morning I have read that a strong cup of coffee taken with medication can help alleviate symptoms. My migraine attacks started a couple of years ago and the medication that I was prescribed seems not as effective as it was initially. I would like any advice on how to deal with an attack. I appreciate that what works for someone else would possibly not work for me but anything is with a try.
