I have a terrible migraine now and I have already taken a paracetamol but it hasn't subsided even after 2 hours. I work from home and is in front of the computer 9hours a day, 7 days of the week. I had to log out from my shift today as I am in terrible pain. Sensitive to light and noise. Iwould suddenly black out with combined with a crowning pain in my head and an irritating flat line sound. Last time this happened my hubby took me to the hospital and they put a dextrose to help me. But I dont want to go to a hospital now due to covid. Please help. Thank you.
