Today I got the opportunity to discover that this eases a certain degree of migraine pain nearly as well as pai mu tan. whimper

Auggy

So sorry about the migraine. I hope it goes away soon and with no migraine hangover!

Luthien

Thanks. It’s still hanging around at the edges, but at least I have tea!

Eep. Migraines may just be the bane of my existence. Usually turn off all the lights and I hide under blankets in the fetal position when they decide to plague me [I wish I were kidding], but IF there’s a next time I’ll have to try tea.

I hope you’re feeling better Luthien. I had a rather bad headache myself this afternoon. It went from annoying headache to too-hot-nauseous-must-lie-curled-up-in-cool-room-with-no-lights while I was driving home. Thankfully, I wasn’t far but I was sitting in traffic. I’m currently in the period of thank-god-this-headache-is-gone happiness. Two ibuprofens and an hours nap on the couch then chicken soup worked today.

Takgoti, you should totally try a double strength brew of one of the stronger white teas like pai mu tan if you get another migraine. It won’t cure it, but it should ease the pain. I was amazed the first time it had that effect on me because I’m so used to nothing really helping, but it happens every time so it’s not a fluke. Several friends of mine have had the same reaction and apparently there are also some medical studies that support this – it’s not just wishful thinking.

Glad you’re feeling better, chrine. There’s nothing quite like the relief when you come out the other side of a headache like that!
