    Twelve hours is just the beginning of a migraine. They can last anywhere upto two weeks.

    What sort of migraine is it? Common ir with aura? Many people manage to stay awake with sleeping for 12+ hours, so not sure its that unusual.

    Looking at a screen isnt going to help. Get off TSR. Maybe go to bed, close the curtains, take your medication and rest?You are doinga good job of an attention seeking man child.

    Take painkillers?
    Depends what painkillers. You should almost never take paracetemol for a migraine. For one thing, it's not strong enough. For another, if you keep taking it, it can make your migraine worse. Ibupurofen can help sometimes, though it's not usually strong enough for a really bad migraine, and you also don't want to keep taking that.

    Painkillers also don't do much to deal with symptoms specific to migraines, as migraines aren't just simple headaches. Your nervous system is actually just going crazy, and dulling some of those signals isn't going to stop all of the symptoms. Usually, painkillers only dull the pain, and they might not necessarily even do that very well.

    So unfortunately, painkillers aren't really the best solution for migraines.

    I've got a prescription of Zolmitriptan that helps sometimes, but you have to take it as soon as you start feeling a migraine coming on.

    I used to have migraines with severe aura (basically went blind) but fortunately this isn't one of those
