Be vigilant: This is common. Some migraineurs would make great weatherpeople; they can predict a cold front 3 days in advance without any silly Doppler radar. Mainly women, I don't know why. It helps not to wait till the headache arrives. Try treating as soon as you feel the "hovering" feeling migraineurs describe. Work out a stepwise system with multiple meds.

Several possibilitie: First identifying triggers in the diet or lifestyle are important as that may abort them altogether. I also suggest chinese medicine and acupuncture as I have seen headaches disappear during treatment. There are also medications that can help a great deal when one starts.. So having several options is very helpful!
