I've had a migraine for three days now and NOTHING helps. 
not tylenol, 
not essential oils,
not water,
not eating something, 
not resting,
absolutely NOTHING.  
it hurts so bad to open my eye on the side that hurts sometimes too and I don't know what to do. :( help me.

The only thing that helped a little bit was a heating pad/pack on my head. The heat helps open up the constricted blood vessels.

I just had a major one all weekend. So I feel your pain.

I get them due to a prior vehicle accident. Mine are horrible and can last from 1 day to a week.  I ended up getting a pprescription medication from my doctor.  It works well the only down side is I end up feeling like I cant breathe.

Caffeine helps mine. Also vibration. At my old job in a lab I would put my head against the wall when the centrifuge machine was spinning. At home instead I use the dryer and that helps. Also sometimes chewing something hard and crunchy, like ice.
