I recognize which headaches are migraines in the making and immediately take my meds along with black coffee and very dark chocolate. That will often keep it at bay if I catch it at the first twinge.

I have terrible migraines that I have figured out are connected to my hormonal cycle. The only thing that seems to help keep them at bay when I feel one come on is a sleep mask that puts pressure on my eyes.

Since cutting certain foods from my diet, I rarely have migraines now.
