I just wanted to share that I tried a headache remedy that JillyT suggested a while back. in another discussion I posted. I shared I have had migraines for 18 years. She said her doctor has migraines and told her when she feels a migraine coming on she drinks cafeine and eats protein. Well Tues. this week I had what I call a double migraine. I use Zomig inhalers which use to be extremely effective, but anymore they don't seem to be doing the job. I actually used 2 within a couple of hours and still had to spend the entire day and night in bed. Well the next morning I awoke at 4:30 am feeling another coming on. At 5:00 am I got up, drank a can of diet Pepsi and ate a handful of walnuts (5 g of protein in a half a cup), I added my own technique, I bent over in a chair and pressed my cheek bones on my knees and massaged my scalp and took deep breaths. I seemed to feel better in a half hour. I drank another can of Pepsi and some more walnuts and continued, and in an hour, the headache was GONE! I was able to get to work, and watch my grandkids that pm from 5 to 10 pm. It beats adding more toxins to the body. I'll try in again next time to see if it was just a fluke, but I thought it was pretty amazing and just had to share and say thanks JillyT.

Does anyone know if a better RA forum than this one? I always loved to come here. I would read a lot & post some. Now it's so hard for me to read the posts.
