I had one today. I have had them since I was a teenager. First, my vision goes crazy and usually makes me sick to my stomach. Then the headache starts, usually behind one of my eyes. It hurts so bad I want to cut my head off, well not really, but it does hurt. Does anyone have anything that they do that relieves this pain? I have two children and have to be able to function to care for them. My DH is on nights right now, or he would have gladly played with the kids while I knocked myself out. I was just wondering if anyone had a miracle cure for theirs.
