When you have pulsing pain in your head, you are vomiting and nauseous, can barely speak or see, then you feel like:

b)         got hit by a truck

c)         have a migraine headache

Headache and Migraine classic symptoms include pulsing sensation, flashes of light, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light, sound, pain and many other symptoms.
Almost 90% of Migraines respond to a pain killer meds together with deep hydration of an electrolyte liquids with some potassium and major portions of sodium chloride,  magnesium salts and calcium.   The main issue with usual pain killers are that they are generally quite toxic.  It is never recommended that patients take pain meds for a long time. But patients often do so and this fact is reflected in the many thousands of drug related death incidents.

“When I realized I was using to much Xanax on a daily basis, I took time off work to get off it. I was addicted, I went ‘cold chicken.’ For 5 days and nights I was sick in bed. I didn’t eat or sleep. I had hallucinations and anxiety. On about the 3rd day without Xanax I started to become unfocused and unbalanced. On about the fourth day I became really worried when I started having twitching sensations.”  – Patricia F.
