Migraine Remedies

Do any of you suffer from migraines? I sure do. I started having them when I was in fourth grade, I remember my first one very clearly.

I was in gym class and we were playing volleyball. I was doing terribly regardless of the fact that I am not athletically inclined in any way, shape or form and my teammates were getting on my case. I pulled my best friend aside and told her "I can't see" She was freaked out, naturally, as was I. I really couldn't see! It was like I had zigzags across my vision.

She walked me to the nurse and I laid down on those awful cot thingies they have and then the headache came on. Oh those headaches. They are in a realm of their own.

My parents took me to various doctors to see if my vision was screwed up or if it really was a migraine and sure enough, the devilish little headache monster won.

Since then, I've gotten them off and on and don't really know what causes them but I had one the other day that came out of nowhere and left me in the fetal position surrounded by pillows, blankets, comforters and Lisa for hours. I'm sure laying down in this little paradise woulda done the trick too, but I take what I can get ;)
What? You were expecting a beach scene? The pounding of the waves would've made my head split!

How to you remedy your migraines? I'm always up for new techniques to make the buggers go away as quickly as possible.
