to take 3 ecedrin migraine and use a hot, hot pad and then to take 3 ecedrin pm before going to bed if I can feel the beast creeping around. Doesn't do to much, but it might help. Also, drink lots and lots and lots of water. Some people have also had some sucess w/cayanne pepper and fever few - check at a health food store. Be careful w/the cayanne though - the first time I took it I didn't drink enough H2O and eat after taking it and it tore up my stomach something awful. None of these remedies are likely to have a great effect on the beast, but they may help to make it more bereable You might also try just calling the doc and letting them know that you're in serious pain. If you've already been diagnosed and have some idea of what works for you, they're sometimes pretty open to calling in a prescription for you. That's also kind of nice because by the time you see them, you'll know if the med is working and can make any needed adjustments then and there. Good luck!
