Re: i have had a bad migraine for 5 days what dose it mean
welcome to the world of migraines... 5 days is a standard migraine duration.
migraines generally present as a bad headache combined with nausea, dizzyness, vertigo, photophobia (sensetivity to light) sensetivity to noise and sometimes chills/fever.
5 days is a normal length for a migraine, most times they start as a headache then more symptoms appear over the course of 1-2 days, nausea and photophobia are the first symptoms to appear with the headache, seeing aura's or sparkles are common.
the best cure is to lie down in a cool but comfortable room in complete darkness (not even natural light) take something for the pain
a common medication available OTC for migraine relieg is an APAP (paracetamol in the UK or acetaminophen in the US) plus codeine for the pain with an antihistamine type drug for the nausea (it will end in "ine" each brand use their own preferred drug here)
take the recomended dose with a large glass of water (if you can stomach it) and try to sleep in the darkness, this will relieve mose migraine headaches.
however, if you have a more severe chronic migraine developing you will not notice any improvement of the symptoms and should see a doctor who will be able to diagnose your condition and prescribe a medication to relieve your pain. if it becomes a recurrant problem you may be prescribed a one-per-day medication to help prevent migraines.
fun fact: the chemicals released during orgasm are proven to help reduce a headache faster than any OTC medication.
