If you have ever suffered from a migraine, you know they are so much more than just a headache. They take over your body so that the simplest tasks seem nearly impossible to perform.
Getting regular migraines is not only excruciatingly painful, they are also very inconvenient. Depending on how severe it is, you can't go to work, send a text, or even sleep.
If you have them frequently enough, you are probably on medication for them. But for those of us who don't get them that regularly or just don't like to treat them with medication, there are natural ways to get rid of them faster. Here are seven ways to get rid of a migraine, fast.
1. Have a Coke.
I don't think this is proven to be effective, but I had to add it because when I used to always get migraines my mom insisted I drank a Coke. It could have totally just been the placebo effect, (I was told it worked, so I assumed it did) but this always seemed to help relieve some of the pain. So, don't think this one is scientifically proven or anything, but I find it works for me!
2. Eats nuts.
Not only should you eat nuts when you feel a migraine coming on, you should also integrate them into your diet, if you suffer from migraines quite often. Nuts contain an important ingredient called salicin. Salicin is a pain blocking agent that's present in many medications.
3. Lay down in a dark place.
The best thing you can do to get rid of a migraine is to lay down in a dark place and literally do nothing. It kind of sucks to have to disrupt your day like this, but if you keep trying to push through it, it will probably only get worse. Make sure there are no lights on, and don't look at any screens such as your TV or phone.
