Medications, etc...: There are a variety of meds to 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 a person gets headaches and their possible triggers (chocolate, caffeine, menstruation, etc.). That way, she can avoid the triggers in the future.
