Preventing migraine for me is best as the pain triggers CRPS/RSD nerve firing.

One of my specialists advised me to try Vitamin B2 to prevent migraine. This was after I'd spent two weeks curled up in a ball with excruciating nerve firing on one side of my head. Every sound, movement, touch made it worse. I was told to lie still till the firing eased. I lost two weeks of my life in unbelievable pain.

Preventing migraine is my management strategy but sometimes I get breakthrough pain. Until a few weeks ago if I had breakthrough pain my doctor would use Yamamoto New Scalp Acupuncture to treat and stop the headache. It works with a headache gone completely within 30 minutes. Sadly my doctor had a heart attack and was unable to help me when I had a recent headache which lasted several days. This triggered nerve firing in my head. It was bad but not of the intensity I'd had before. I was anxious as I couldn't think what to do. In the past I'd been given anti epileptic drugs but I can no longer tolerate them. I take vitamin B2 to prevent migraine and I've been taking well under the recommended dose used in research. I decided to increase the dose to that suggested in the study. Whether this worked or it just stopped I can't say but the pain stopped in 48 hours.

Remember to always consult with your own doctor about medical matters.
