    Hi All:

    Have a major migraine and I am "acting" boss (My boss is away) so I can't leave work. It is the busy season for TAx Collecting. The firocet is not working (usually does). My neck and back are also killing me. Any ideas on how to get rid of the migraine in a pinch?

    I'm so sorry your having to deal with a migraine and be acting boss today. I have had my share of migraines but I don't have any easy quick answers, I really wish I did.

    How often can you take the firocet?

    Sending you positive thoughts and very gentle hugs, Susan

    I take 2 every 4 hours. Not working though. Maybe some lunch will help.

    You can try this acupressure point - grab the "web" between your thumb and first finger and massage it firmly. Do both hands, and keep doing it as long as you can, it may help your headache subside. Pay special attention to points you hit that are sore and rub them more.

    I read about this several months ago but cannot find where I discovered it, but I think this is accurate.

    I hope this helps -
