well here we are day 2 of a massive migraine... I haven't had one like this in about a year.... Had to be at work yesterday... luckliy it was a half day for the kids. Woke up today, still dying of pain, went to the chriopractor and then to a massage therapist. then slept the rest of the day... question to all. Anyone else suffer from migraines? What do you take? I HATE taking the relpax... side effects suck, haven't had to resort to one of those in about 3 years..... suffered with lesser drugs.... now taking fiorinol, which takes the edge off but doesen't make it go away..... I need suggestions.......... this super sucks!!! no imitrex, it put me in the hospital with a SUPER rapid heart beat, no maxalt, like taking as sugar pill.....

so I am trying to get cought up on the pub.... why was Ol. on probation? I didn't even realize we could get probation..... surprise to me!!!

anyway, I hope everone elses week is going better than mine!

So sorry about the migraines. I used to get them real bad and quite often when I was younger but as I got older it got milder and less frequent. But stress for me brings it on sometimes. I hope you feel better soon. And your week turns around and it ends up being a wonderful week.

I'm concerned about this talk of undisclosed items possibly in your rectum, coupled with the fact that your boss might have "the talk" with you. I just want you to know that it doesn't have to be this way. I support you, and I believe that you deserve to be treated with dignity. We need a telethon or something for you.

All he'd gonna say is Ican't work with outside agencies until the impossible project is done. Already took care of that. Told the other agencies not to look for me to help, they didn't like that and will discuss it with our board of directors. I'll win. I always do

Politics suits me. I'm super manipulative

Two aspirin, 2 tylenol, and follow it with a cup of strong coffee! Or, excedrin migraine.

I was put on probation due to Corrado! I would have thought a simple pm saying, "please don't do that" followed by an "OK" by me would have been enough, given that we're on the more adult side here...but I digress and will refrain from huging around with naughty words...

caffeine is a vascillary constrictor if I remember right, that should help the migraine.

I have had migraines for years, I feel your pain. I have had some success with Toradol, (ketorolac tromethamine, prescription only, which is an NSAID (Non-Steroidal Anti Inflammatory Drug, i.e. acetaminophen, ibuprofen, etc.) but reputed to be as strong as opiates. It is available orally but a shot in the butt works best for me. Maybe Ask your doctor what he/she thinks about it. Per Bowtie, caffeine in conjunction with meds works for me too.

Edit: If you don't like coffee, just buy some No-doze or other "stay awake" tablets. Plenty 'o caffeine in them.

Green tea is pretty high in caffeine as well if you don't like coffee. Without at least a cup of tea in the morning I often find myself with a mild headache by lunch time.

Yeah, but still significantly less (by half or more), depending on brew time. It's roughly equivalent to a 12oz can of Coke. If you leave the bag in longer, the caffeine content is higher, but it will never match the equivalent volume of coffee.

On the other hand, tea (green in particular) generally requires fewer additions to make it palatable - you can get away without adding milk and/or sugar, so it's basically calorie-free caffeine, with the added benefits of antioxidants. And unlike caffeine pills, it is easier to control how quickly the caffeine gets into your system. Much less chance of a caffeine spike/crash with tea than with pills.

If you're going for the caffeine of it, you want to drink it hot. Making it iced dilutes it and you'll have to drink far more of it to achieve the same caffeine content.

true, but depends on the kind of green tea. Japanese powder stuff is different from leeaf tea and some are browner and greener than others. hundreds of "green" teas, and then there's yellow, white etc. Many of these I love, along with Jasmine and Lapsang Souchong, as I'm a supertaster who hates the tannins' bitterness in most black (and overcooked) teas.

One to look out for: the South African Rooibos tea, is caffeine free and wonderful. It has an delightful earthy brown almost sweet flavour, and the Boers swear by it.

Black coffee is the way to go. Espresso is even better. Much more concentrated caffeine delivery vehicle. (Although less total caffeine than a cup of drip - ~80 vs ~120 mg.)

You can make iced coffee or tea without diluting - it just takes a while. To make iced coffee simply pour cold water on French press ground coffee and soak it at room temperature for a couple hours. Then let it continue steeping in the fridge until you get the flavour profile you want. Filter it/pour off the liquid form the top and you're good to go. It's less bitter this way and you get more of the nuanced flavours.

Certainly. Yoou have to wait for the tannins to soften, rather than love the kick which others can get from the tannins as they prefer what we sense as bitter. 25% of the population has this oddly-named "supertaster" genetic profile, apparently. Of course that's not the only determinant to taste preferences: there are, for example, personal history, cultural and habituation effects involved as well.

why couldn't you just make coffee ice cubes and use them in place of water in hot coffee?
