I tried the 800mgs of brufen with the mountain dew for my mirgaine and it was fabulous. I was quite happy to be relieved of a nightmarish head. I added a sinus rinse for extra measure. I was wondering if a cup of coffee or a sugar free caffeinated drink would work? Or doest the sweetner go against the treatment? I've heard that, just could save a few calories. Then again, I'll take the extra calories if it means no pain. Just wondering. Don't want to try it and regret it. Answered by Tynisha Weekes 2 years ago.
Not completely true. Mountain Dew has no caffeine in Canada and some US States, but does have a lot of caffeine in most of the US. Caffeine is an excellent weapon against migraines and other sorts of headaches. That's why Excedrin contains a caffeine as well as a painkiller. Diet Dew, Diet Dr. Pepper, diet energy drinks and coffee will all supply plenty of caffeine without calories. 800mg is double the standard full dose of ibuprofen. I'm sure that had something to do with the relief. It is possible that your headache was not a migraine. They are rarer than most people think. Many people think any really painful headache is a migraine. It is not so. Migraine can happen with no pain at all. Answered by Anh Hasek 2 years ago.
Caffeine is the ingredient that is effective against migraines and I don't think Mountain Dew has any so it was most likely the ibuprofen that helped your headache. That aside, diet or not would not affect the caffiene in the drink but some artificial sweeteners can trigger migraines. You really need to experiement and see what works best for you.

To the other answerer, Mountain Dew is loaded with caffeine. That, with the ibuprofen, probably relieved it. So, the sugar most likely had no part in relieving your migrane. Answered by Kristina Moothart 2 years ago.
How do I know if I have a migraine?
for the past 4 days I've been having throbbing pain on different areas of my head. I had a normal CT scan and my Doctor gave me Motrin. My head hurts soooo much and it wont go away.. i already took my daily amount of Motrin already... Could this really be a migraine? how can i make it go away?

migraine can differ from person to person, but the common traits are usually these: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, sharp throbbing pain, sensitivity to light and sound, inability to speak clearly....and, mostly a desire to stay in a dark silent room. migraines are fcked up! Answered by Jude Kahawai 2 years ago.
Does light seem to bother you? Does it sound like people are screaming when its close to a whisper? Noises sound so loud that you feel like your head is going to explode? Any vomiting or nausea? These are all signs of a migraine. Sometimes a cold compress on your forhead and on the back of your neck will help. Lie down in a dark room and try maybe a coke to drink, sometimes the caffiene will help. Good luck-hope you feel better Answered by Phylis Bushaw 2 years ago.

Painkillers at best may ease the pain short-term, but they do nothing to resolve the problem - menstrual migraines come from hormonal imbalance and emotional upset, deal with those. Hormone-wise you firstly need to be healthy so make sure you're eating well, getting enough sleep, excercise, and plenty of water. If you have no other symptoms then no reason to think there is a major issue, you can help regulate your hormones by using evening primrose, black cohosh, and best of all would be chaste-tree tincture daily. There are many ways of helping with this, look about a bit for more information and see what works for you. Emotional upset, menstruation is about more than a physical function, your cycles effect your mental and emotional well-being and vice versa, if you are at all stressed, strained, have issues or concerns about your life these will add to the migraines. Importantly your attitude towards menstruation makes a big difference, not only do those who feel possitivley about menstruation learn more and so know better how to deal with problems such as cramps, migraines, etc. but they are more likely to love their periods because menstruation is a happy and positive experience...when you're happy migraines are less likely! Really, it sounds hippy-ish but I promise you when it comes to issues like this your mental and emotional well-being is as much in play as your physical and reproductive health.

Chau that was bad! you are a bad man! Have you tried midol it is an anti-inflammatory. When you are menstrual and feel like crap and find yourself snapping at people one thing my psych teacher said that helps is chocolate. She said that when you menstruate your serotonin levels go down and chocolate can bring them back up. I don't imagine you feel like eating now that you have thrown up, but it might help in the future. I hope you feel better. Answered by Trudy Cibrian 2 years ago.

My 10 year old daughter was fine until 2 months or so ago. Then all of a sudden about once a week she started telling me she was tired and within an hour shes throwing up. All night long! Her dad said he took her to a doctor and had everything checked out the doctor sent him to a nuerologist. That doctor said she has Adolesent Migraines. Ive never heard of a headache with no head pain. Has anyone else dealt with this or know more about it? The doctor gave her motrin, *oz of warm coke and Benadryl. But when we give it to her she throws up. Can anyone help me help her? Answered by Avis Stegall 2 years ago.
Migraines in teens usually have all the signs of Pre-migraine. You've seen them. The pain comes later and you'll wish this was all there was. Keep her warm, keep trying the coke, but I prefer Ginger ale or chamomile tea with a little honey. Try warm baths with baby lavender wash or bubble bath. Answered by Ma Kooistra 2 years ago.
