you could go to a drug store and get ice packs that are gelled and long with the handles on them and the little tea towles wrapped around them. I have about 6 of them. When I get hit with a ha I take 1 or 2 and wrap them around the back of my neck over my shoulders and take another and hold it on my right side of face. Then routate towels as needed. This way you can save on the cost of buying migraine ice. I have also found during a cluster my body temp rises and my shoulder muscles tighten so when I started with the ice towles it really had multiple benifits. Some people have had luck with hot showers, cold showers, exercising, etc. I take percacet or stadol ns to help with the pain when imitrix doesn't do the trick. Don't be afraid to let your dr. know when you are in pain and when you abortives are not always meeting your needs.
