How do you manage migraine in the Times of COVID-19 Pandemic

This pandemic is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation. I have been facing an enormous problem in getting optimum care because of difficulty in access, forced social isolation, and encountering a health system that is getting rapidly overwhelmed.

How do you manage migraine in the Times of COVID-19 Pandemic

Lack of access to health care has been an issue for me, too. The only thing you can do is work the rest of the steps.


COVID despite the hype, hysteria and propaganda, really isn’t all that deadly though in a rare few cases it’s serious. The US CDC says 94% of people listed as COVID deaths died with it rather than of it. The average age of a COVID death is 80 with an average of 2.5 comorbidities. Nearly 45% of COVID deaths are in nursing homes despite only representing 7% of cases. VM is not a comorbidity danger for COVID. COVID is serious but not worth panicking about. Here in Washington State, the 2018/2019 flu and pneumonia season was 27x more deadly than COVID has been. I say these things to remind you fear is a tool, you don’t have to accept it. Let go of as much stress as you can.

All the rest of it

  • Follow the migraine diet and leave out all alcohol, caffeine and your own triggers.
  • Hydrate and get adequate electrolytes.
  • Follow proper sleep hygiene.
  • Stay away from screens and other light triggers.
  • Get as much exercise as you can tolerate.
  • Pray, meditate, read or do whatever works for you to get in a more calm and spiritual state.
  • Take your supplements if you have them.

Great post to read thanks for sharing this one.
