Entry #5 (Findings from Research Level 4)
A few users are finding success by taking daily Amitriptyline as a preventative method. A user reported being 115 days migraine-free by taking a combination of vitamin B complex, vitamin D3, Flonase, 220 mg of Aleeve and also one 24 hour Zyrtec tablet for sinus inflations. Some people have had high successes by seeing chiropractor Dr. David King who specializes in pain relief and works out of 265 Carling Avenue, Suite 404 in Ottawa,. My research brought me to seeing what the various symptoms of an migraine attack are. Some symptoms found were: yawning, watery eyes, extended neck pains, aura, pulsating pain on the left or right side of the head, fevers, dizziness, blurred vision, sensitivity to smells, touch, sight, sounds. Some users swear by a gluten-free diet and one in particular has only had 4 to 5 migraines per year since switching. A co-worker suggested putting an ice pack at the back of the neck and soaking your bare feet in ice cold water. (the psychology of adhering to the bodies extremities) I've come across a few users that swear by massaging the pressure points (hands and temples) and applying a certain amount of pressure.
