Medications, etc...: There are a variety of medications that can stop a migraine after it has started, as well as help to prevent migraines from occurring in the first place. See the doctor to find what is best for you. Also, it is important to keep a headache diary to determine when you get headaches and possible triggers (chocolate, caffeine, menstruation, etc). That way you can avoid these triggers in the future.

See dr. : Most headaches not serious. However, first your doctor will determine what type of headache you have. Headaches have many causes i suggest you see your physician and discuss a plan to determine the cause. Your doctor might order imaging of brain and optic nerve exam to rule out serious conditions.
