Helpful Migraine Tips & Printable Headache Tracker

Both Marty and Sarah get migraines occasionally. I’m lucky to have only had a few while I was pregnant. I can tell you that when they get them, they go immediately to bed – in a dark room – with no noise and I spend the whole day tiptoeing around hoping that the phone doesn’t ring.

Helpful Migraine Tips

They both get migraines for different reasons but both received the same helpful migraine tips from their doctors. There is no cure for migraines but these tips have helped them both deal with their migraines when they do get them.

  • Turn off the lights. Many migraine sufferers are sensitive to light. Turn off the lights and pull down the shades. Try to sleep if possible. Try tinted sunglasses if you need to go out. Try earplugs.

  • Try hot or cold compresses. My husband likes cold compresses but heat always works best for me. Experiment.
  • Have a cup of coffee. Caffeine can help some migraine sufferers because it makes pain relievers more effective and causes them to be absorbed more quickly into the body. Don’t drink too much though or you can have withdrawal.
  • Try a gentle massage. Try massaging your temples gently to relieve some of the pain. Some people find relief by dry skin brushing.
  • Relax and meditate. Try a relaxing yoga pose or experiment with deep breathing and mediation. Stress can trigger migraines and make them worse.
