There is not much to beat the pain of a migraine headache. Some can even pass out from it. This was one of the things learned by speaking to others who have intense consequences when such is affecting them. Normal analgesics often do not work and sometimes an injection of morpheme is required from a doctor. The patient may relapse however and the ongoing symptoms persist while diagnosis of the cause escapes them.
When my children were little and the pressure of working and running a home, and so forth, was a priority, the pain of headaches was a constant drag. At the same time a severe back problem took me to the local naturopath who regularly massaged and did other things, such as manipulation, to relate the trauma.
She also advised that primary causes of headaches are diet related. Her suggestion was that oranges, chocolate, cheese, and such played a big role in it. Once they were excluded from my diet the back pain also cleared up.
Now only very rarely does a headache bother me and that is usually after ingesting something that is not in my normal diet. Having eliminated salt and sugar where possible the idea of such is far from my mind.
My son, who plasters his food with salt, sufferers extreme migraines. As much as he has been informed of the danger of salt he persists it is not the cause. As more information is now available on health it is one of the number one items that should be avoided. Unfortunately manufacturers put excess quantities of it in food and take-away items are loaded with it.
