In the questionaire about remedies/medecines, I'm missing one specific treat that I use for quite a while: ginger powder. This one is well known as an (possible)effective treat against migraine.
In my case (clusterheadache), it appears to be effective in two ways: when I feel a attack starts, I take a third teaspoon gingerpowder stirred in water, and most of the time the attack stops; on other occasions the attack proceeds, but less painfull than normally. And sometimes is doesn't help.
From the time on I use it, the amount of serious attacks is far less than before.
It has to be ginger powder, because the stuff that is supposed to do the work (shogaol) is concentrated in powder. You don't need to buy expensive capsules, just buy the powder in whatever shop where they sell spices and herbs.
I hope this info. is helpfull for others. At least you can try it.
