Prolonged migraine: But it can be also due to more serious problems, such as thyroid disease, anemia, magnesium deficiency, and other. Definitely need to see a doc for testing and treatment. If all tests are normal, Migralex, Imitrex, (sumatriptan) and other drugs can help. Also, taking magnesium and other supplements can help. Regular exercise, meditation, healthy diet, etc, is the way to prevent headaches.
