Prevention vs rescue: Go see your family doctor about taking a triptan class of medication to stop the migraine once it's started. Check out my blog post at http://alvinblin.Blogspot.Com/2012/04/evidence-based-migraine-prevention.Html to review some options to prevent the headaches as recommended by the american academy of neurology. Good luck!

Urgent care or ER: Administration of DHE-45, ketamine, lidocaine, other agents to be a very safe and reasonable treatment for a massive headache. DHE-45 is used frequently in the hospital emergency rooms or urgent care to stop a severe migraine and headache. Good luck.
