HotIgneous Intruder: How about, "HAVE MORE DIET COKE AND COFFEE!"/Never have met a person who had migraines who also wasn't also a caffeine and/or soda addict.
enik: You could apply a list like that to any chronic sickness people suffer from. I get stupid comments like those all the time when dealing with asthma.
radiobiz: I hate it when people tell me they "get migraines too!" when they don't. "Oh, but just take a couple Advil and you'll be fine!" I could have smacked that lady but I was too busy trying not to vomit all over the drug store counter from the spinning.
Mikey1969: The ONE thing to say?"Can I rub your hand?"Seriously, there's a trigger point that will help 99% of the time, right in the webbing between the thumb and the index finger. You can almost always find a knot in this, but you actually have to be pretty brutal to get this to work. If you pinch the fark out of this knot, and hold it , you will fell it noticeably reduce in size, and within a few minutes, it will be almost completely gone. Oftentimes, my wife will fell her head throbbing, which is a good sign, it means the blood is flowing freely again. Within half an hour or so, the worst of the migraine is gone.It's a great solution, but like I said, you have to work that thing hardcore... It doesn't help when my wife has the DEFCON 1 migraines, but it's amazing how well it works. Worst part about migraines is identifying the triggers, they could be absolutely anything, it seems that lack of sleep is a pretty common factor for her. Luckily we haven't had to try an elimination diet, that shiat can take forever, trying to nail downa specific food item that causes them.
RivenSilver: The best thing you can say to them is "Here's some LSD."
Cheese eating surrender monkey: enik: You could apply a list like that to any chronic sickness people suffer from. I get stupid comments like those all the time when dealing with asthma.I get chronic migraines and the stupid questions stopped the day I puked on a co-worker.
Tiberius Gracchus: "Stop whining; you're not the first person to get a headache, and you won't be the last."
Fabric_Man: The best thing to say is nothing. Just gently usher them into a dark, quiet room with their medicine (if any), and let them ride it out.
