    I get migraine headaches from time to time. One time when I was 16, I suffering from a really bad migraine. Their was crying involved. About 4 years ago I had a migraine with an aura. Scared the **** out of me, I thought I had a brain tumor or something. lol

    I’ve had problems with headaches since I was young when I would periodically get migraines. I have also been through a period of tension headaches for several months. In my experience tension headaches are much less severe than migraines. Bad migraines can make you feel like u were dead. The pain is utterly terrible often accompanied by lots of nausea and I used to cry from it.

    The only way I could get rid of it is to somehow try and fall asleep, often waking up several hours later with an ecstatic feeling that it’s gone. My advice to people who suffer from bad migraines is as soon as you feel it building up, immediately lie down in a quiet dark room and attempt to sleep. I often put a cold wet facecloth over my head – this helps immeasurably. Doing anything at all will simply make it worse.

    This is helpful. I just have nonstop headaches, and not migraines. I don’t have problems with light and sound under pain. I just wish my Tylenol would work.

    I’ve had many operations, tattoos, beatings, and nothing compares to the pain of a migraine. It makes me want to rip my eyeball out.

    migraine ****ing hurts, it hurts more than a headache, like 100x more, it violently shakes my head and makes my eyes and head dizzy, i couldn’t control my movement of eyes and it really is sensitive to light and sound, i heard a loud noise and i felt my eardrum busted
