If you have ever had one, then you know they suck. Throbbing pain, head pressure, upset stomach, traumatic distress… generally debilitating.
I had the dubious luck to find the blinding peripheral vision auras first and knew what was coming. I got myself some aspirin first, began drinking water, caffeine, and eating chocolate. Second, I hurried home from work and grabbed my sexy flashes salve.
This was my first true experimentation. I did have a friend tell me that it helped her and while her headache was not removed (because frankly, not even modern medicine has that figured out) the symptoms were significantly enhanced.
I knew I had to cool down. I threw my work clothes off, cracked a couple of windows and laid down with my eyes closed, but not too tight as it pulls and leaves my skull want to burst.
The lid slipped off and I rubbed it along my temples, and forehead. It was smooth and did not pull, so step one of the encounter was complete. I rubbed fairly firmly along my temple and up in my hair and then over my eyebrows.
The relief wasn’t instantaneous, but the combination of aspirin and salve got rid of the throbbing in my temples and behind my eyes. I was glad that it worked…
I applied it a couple more times since I liked the experience of massaging my aching skull and my symptoms were gone through the evening.
I gulped down some more aspirin and packaged both cold and hot salves for work.
At work, I felt the pain coming, but I was cold sweating a bit. My hands, feet, and nose felt chilly. I did the identical massage methods and it felt very good. The scent of this salve was also very relaxing and nice.
If anybody has had a similar experience or needs advice on which salve is greatest, or simply wants to tell me how much migraines suck… Speak To Me. I wish to hear your own voice. I’m not a physician, not claim to have a cure… rather only saying what’s worked for me.
