Default Headaches/Migranes and Exercise?

Does anyone else out there struggle with migranes or other chronic headaches? How do you manage to exercise through them? I'm having the hardest time moving my body while in the throes of headache pain, and since it's chronic (pretty much 24/7 for a couple weeks at a time), I know I have to find a way to get on with the exercise in spite of it. But it's awfully hard to hop on a treadmill when movement makes my head worse. Any tips/strategies/ideas?

I would say that you need to find a way to stop or lessen the headaches. I used to get migraines and can't imagine working out through them!

Here is what helped stop my migraines

These three things I consider most important
Calcium 400-1200 mg a day
Magnesium 350 mg a day
Water 80-100 oz a day

I also take fish oil (5g), vitamin e 400 iu, a multivitamin, and ginger 1-4x a day (it helps with nausea and headaches).

Hope you are feeling better soon.
