    It takes a bit of time, but yes. I guess it is the vasoconstriction that drives my blood pressure up as well.

    I am thinking that some sort of meditation when you begin to feel the warning signs that a headache is starting to help you relax even though you're in pain could possibly help you shorten the duration of your suffering.

    Yes, I find biofeedback, visualization, and meditation to be very similar in the sense that they are all based on directing your thoughts to effect your feelings.

    The ones that last only a day I can take. It is the ones that last longer are SO unbearable. I have had to have medical intervention for some. I have had one where I threw up 47 times in one day and was almost on the verge of total dehydration. I was on an Army exercise. They had to hospitalize me and shoot me full of morphine. I had another one that lasted 9 days............. that was SO bad.

    I used to get terrible headaches. I still don't know why they started and why they ended. It was for about a year that I had them on and off. Now they just don't come anymore. I didn't ever throw up though, so you definitely have something going on different than I did. Morphine is great stuff when you need it. I hope you can find some answers that lead to an effective treatment for the root cause.

    They have done all kinds of brain scans. I do know that migraines are genetic and they have no cure as of yet.
