Concussion: Post concussive headaches are tough. Naproxen can be helpful. Excercize by doing yoga! de stress, no caffeine, drink water. Sleep regularly. If they persist past three months from trauma one should see headache specialist to start a preventative medication.

Time to act: Your patience is commendable, but best to break up the pattern. Using the typical migraine preventative approaches, you could consider prescription items like beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, topirimate, depakote, but maybe instead, an otc prep such as riboflavin, butterbur, feverfew, magnesium, co-q10.
