Question by : How do you guys cope with your migraines?
I’ve had migraines for a long time, but they’ve gotten a lot worse in the past year. I’m 16 years old, and live in a very loud house with little kids and stuff. So far, the most I can do is take some painkillers (which never have helped) and nap in a dark room with my noise canceling headphones (no music, because it makes my migraines worse). So I wanted to know if anybody else had some tips to help me out.

It’s tight neck muscles causing your headaches and migraines. Those muscles go to the top of your head and when tight at the top they pull on other muscles that go around the brain and when those muscles go into pain you have your headache. As the muscles go to the top of your head they pass right inside of where your ears are and when your neck muscles are tight they press into the nerves for your ears to give make them hurt during the headache. To get rid of the pains you have to free up your neck muscles and here’s how to do that:
Put your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on the back of the muscle behind your neck. Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold. Relax your body. When your fingers and thumb touch, about two minutes, slowly lower your head as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your neck lowered for another 30 seconds. If any pain remains repeat this.
for best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
