I get those often - I recommend hot tea and a dark room. It might seem odd, but if it gets really bad, block all the light from your shower and sit in it with the hot water coming down - I've found that even the worst migraines tend to be more bearable after doing that for awhile.

Caffeine is a common ingredient in migraine medication, indeed.

Why is it *half* a *seed*, anyway? What does that have to do with anything?

Dunno if you were serious, but... my dictionary says that the "graine" part comes from "kranion" (Greek) meaning skull. The "half a skull" part makes sense since many migraines are unilateral.

Jason, do you get auras?

Have you ever sprayed water on a CRT, so that the droplets magnify the little red, green, and blue elements, making that piece of the screen very saturated but of no particular hue? It is like that, in a medium-sized and annoyingly central part of my field of vision.
