Migraines are miserable, I’m so sorry. I take tablets but if you can’t then I also use a cold compress. But I tend to have to do the same, lie in a dark room until it passes

Aren't you meant to put your feet and hands in cold water and some thing like frozen peas on the back of your neck?

First I must say you are lucky to be on here if you have a migraine, so first thing to do is turn off all gadgets. If able to read then you need a cool room in the dark and try and sleep. I find salt and vinegar crisps help and avoid chocolate, orange, fizzy drinks. Cold flannel on forehead and press of nose. Not all these things will work as we are all different. If you can eat make it light like a simple jam sandwich or ginger biscuit.
