Looking for a gift for a friend or loved one who has migraines? Or maybe looking for a little gift for yourself to help with your migraines? I consulted with several of my colleagues here at Migrastil Migraine Relief, who like me suffer with this chronic condition. This is our collective list of favorite items to help with migraines.
Okay, yes this our own product that we are recommending. But we all use it regularly. I carry one in my pocket most of the time. And the feedback from our customers over the years has been overwhelmingly positive. Most of them report at least some relief from the pain of migraine when they use this convenient roll-on at the start of their migraines. Migraine Stick is all natural (made with high quality essential oils), vegan and cruelty -free. It makes a great stocking-stuffer or just a nice little gift to show someone you care.
Many migraine sufferers are deficient in magnesium, and it is thought that this might be the cause of some migraines. In fact, some emergency rooms even give magnesium injections to help break a migraine. This is why many migraine supplements, including our own, include magnesium. This magnesium spray absorbs through the skin to give your body magnesium quickly.
This one was unanimous. All my colleagues suggested including the Migraine Hat. It's basically a high quality cold pack for your head, but it cools the whole head and is great for migraine relief. This may seem strange if you don't have migraines. But believe me, it works! We like the Original Migraine Hat better than its competitors. It is made in the U.S. and the quality is good. It holds up. And it works great with the Migraine Stick.
Photophobia, or sensitivity to light is one of the most common migraine symptoms. When I have a migraine, even the tiniest amount of light can feel like a car's headlights pointed straight at my eyes. And it hurts! A quality eye mask like this one can really make a difference. We like the IMAK because it also has a cooling feature if you keep it in the freezer.
I'm a self-admitted nerd. I had to include at least one book on this list. I've read a lot of migraine books over the years. This is one of my favorites. I think if you have a condition like migraine that can really affect your whole life, you need to do your best to understand it. Doctors can help you. I've known some really good ones, but in the end no one cares as much about your migraine or understands your unique experience better than you.
I have to admit that I haven't tried these myself, but several of the folks on my team raved about them so I'm including them. A lot of migraneurs (fancy word for people who get migraines) seem to be bothered by fluorescent lighting which is hard to avoid in the modern world. These glasses help block certain parts of the light spectrum that might trigger migraines.
Well there it is - the official/unofficial Migrastil Migraine Relief team's migraine gift list. What would you have included? Let us know in the comments below!
