Water: Make sure to drink plenty of water, this should help with any head aches, you may feel like you are hungry but drink plenty of water and if the feeling hasn't gone away let me know :].

Prevention helps!: Sleep hygiene = 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep, preferably the same 8 hours every night. Smoking cessation (tobacco is a common trigger & aggravating factor for migraines). Adequate hydration, at least 64 ounces of water each day. Exercise & sun exposure routinely. Moderation of caffeine intake, 5 cups of coffee or less per day. Stress reduction. Hope this helps, and good luck!
