Ophthalmic migraine is killing me!

Help, I'm in the middle of a nine hour migraine and need some drugless therapies. Meditation? Breathing exercise? Advil and Tylenol aren't helping.

I suffer ophthalmic migraines about once in a blue moon. Even though prescription drugs usually work okay (not always), by the time I need them they've expired and it's pointless to keep stocking them. The migraines usually hit fast and hard with symptoms including blind spots, numb hands and tongue, vomiting and of course head splitting pain. I've never had one this long and the blind spots and numb hands are coming and going (usually they show up first and then disappear).
Anyone else have to deal with this crap? I have spoken to my doctor, mostly he says to stay in a dark room and relax, but I've been lying down for almost 10 hours and I'm wrecked. Please hit me in the head with a brick. I mean, recommend some exercises.
