Hello There. I can understand your concern, kindly consult a neurologist in this regard. Migraine is a diagnosis of exclusion what that means is that all other causes of the headache need to be excluded before making the diagnosis of migraine. if it is migraine you might be given a sumatriptan prophylaxis for 3 months. you need to take the whole course. best regards, Dr. Anil kumar jain. bangalore.

Hi...., Self-care measures can help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Try muscle relaxation exercises. Relaxation may help ease the pain of a migraine headache. Relaxation techniques may include progressive muscle relaxation, meditation or yoga. Get enough sleep, but don't oversleep. Get an adequate amount of sleep each night. It's best to go to bed and wake up at regular times, as well......
