The throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and sounds, lightheadedness, and nausea are all signs migraine headache sufferers know all too well. Although many people who suffer from migraines take preventive measures, it’s easy to feel completely powerless when the pain of a migraine sets in and while pharmaceuticals are getting better in treating them, health experts offer some tips for you to conquer a migraine.  First, get to a quiet, dark room and lying down with an ice pack on your neck or forehead. It can decrease the effects of external stimuli, such as bright light and noise, both of which can either trigger a migraine or aggravate one that’s already started. Take a bath with Epsom salt. Epsom salts contain magnesium, which can help soothe an oncoming migraine and prevent future occurrences. Plus, the relaxation that often accompanies bathing can also help ease or stop the migraine. Drink a large glass of water. Dehydration is a leading cause of migraines, so make sure to keep yourself hydrated, especially if you will be outside during these hot and humid days. Try drinking ginger tea. Ginger contains over 200 powerful substances in its oils and has been around for over 2,000 years and has been used to calm muscle contractions and inflammation, which is great for combating migraine pains. Of course, talk with your doctor before trying any of these suggestions.
