I suffer from migraines about 1/2 the month. When your Imitrex/Relpax etc. doesnt work, or you dont take it in time, (it happens to me mostly when i get one when im sleeping, and by the time I wake up its too late to stop it), what do you take for pain? If i get a full migraine, that i cant stop with imitrex, they last for 3-5 days. So, just waiting it, and laying in the dark isnt an option. Short of going to the ER (which ive done many times), what do you guys take for migraine pain? My husband does acupressure for my migraines, but it takes a few days to work. Thanks
