for me, i tend to get migraines when my facial and neck muscles are extremely tense and sore, which occurs from stress, talking, eating, laughing, etc.
for my pain, ive tried numerous medications, which i dont feel like listing right now.. hehe. too many to list. :|
the only medication ive had some success with controlling my muscular pain was botox. i got 2 rounds of botox injections - the first time, it worked amazingly, and i didnt have much facial pain or migraines for about 3 months. unfortunately, the 2nd round of injections did not work at all, and it made my pain worse.
also, i guess you have to figure out if your pain is primarily muscular and/or from the TMJs, themselves. when the botox worked the first time, i noticed i had pain coming from the joints themselves, which i hadnt noticed before. taking some ibuprofen/vioxx/celebrex helped with the joint pain.
my hypothesis about migraines, at least for myself, is that they're caused by muscular problems, so im wondering if you could go down that route and try muscle relaxants. maybe you could try flexeril? it's a muscle relaxant, and it helped me a bit.
good luck and take care.
