Could be!: This could be migraines! but migraines are usually based on ruling out other causes. So do just assume as such. It is best to be examined and when other bad stuff have been ruled out, then it is assumed as a migraine.

Headache: This sounds like a headache and could be a migraine or could be a different type of headache like a tension headache. If the pain doesn't resolve, or causes continued vomiting, or you are waking up in the middle of the night with very painful headaches, etc you should be evaluated by a physician as soon as possible.

Likely migraine: If you do not have fever or a stiff neck, and this is a problem that is paroxysmal and repetitive, you do indeed have a migraine, and this needs to be controlled and stopped. Likely, your doctor could provide a medication to improve your situation, but best to prevent these, and several prescription and otc choices will work.
