How do i get rid of a migraine with aura? Ive had a headache for the past 3 days and im pretty sure that's the medical term. I've tried multiple meds.

In brief: Suggestions

1. Avoid pain meds, especially opioids, even tylenol, (acetaminophen) as these do exacerbate migraines.
Cambia powder can help at any point in a migraine. 2. If pattern becomes consistent, will need preventative approach to stop chronicity, and many prescription and OTC items can be tried. 3. Would a Concierge virtual consult be useful?

In brief: Get see by physician

If you are not allergic to a component and can try otc excedrin that should help initially.
If you've tried this and others you need to be seen as there are multiple options and possible other types of headaches.
