I find that if I pluck up the courage to eat, or drink hot tea at the start of an attack, then the attack often fades out wihtout coming to anything.
Likewise, if the attack comes at waking up time, then it sometimes abates if I get out of bed and start moving.
I wonder if it's got it's wires crossed, and is sending me the wrong hormones. So instead of waking me up, putting me to slepp, or making me hungry, it is in fact sending out excess Serotonin. This may explain why eating, drinking, getting up etc all clear the headache, because I'm sending the hypothalmus the feedback it wants.
And lets face it the last things you feel like doing during an attack are eating, drinking and sleeping.
