Applying Heat or Cold for Migraine Relief

The pain of a migraine headache demands quick action. One simple, natural way for migraine sufferers to seek relief is with the judicious application of heat or cold. This type of pain relief is particularly popular with people trying to reduce or avoid prescription medication use, especially among children and their families.

Here are a few techniques that can help relieve the pain of a migraine. Not all techniques work for all people. While some migraine sufferers find comfort in cold, at least as many become more uncomfortable in the presence of cold. The same is true of heat used for pain relief. Some it helps, but for others it makes the pain worse.

Apply a hot or cold compress to the place on the head where pain is most severe. Frequently, this is on the temple where a large artery runs, or in front of the ear, another arterial location.

For migraine sufferers who feel their pain “stabbing into the back of the eye,” a warm or cool damp cloth laid over the eyes often provides relief. As an added benefit, covering the eyes in this way also eases the discomfort of photo-sensitivity for many.

Taking hot or cold showers with the water directed at the head and neck is another technique to try, as is taking a warm bath. The latter method is further enhanced with the use of appropriate aromatherapy methods.

Some migraine sufferers find relief in by alternating hot and cold cloths at the place where the migraine pain is most severe. Sometimes hot and cold used simultaneously can ease the pain. A migraine sufferer may also apply a cold compress to their forehead while at simultaneously soaking their feet in a container of warm water.

Although, as mentioned before, not all of these techniques will work with everyone, they are simple and easy to use. One of them is likely to work for just about any migraine sufferer. Give them a try. You have nothing to lose, but your migraine pain.
