True Migraine?: When people are having trouble with chronic headaches, proper treatment is based on proper diagnosis. The word "migraine" is not the same as "bad headache".

What are some things I can do to avoid getting a cold?

Not much: The things you're supposed to do are to avoid crowds curing cold season and to wash your hands frequently, but frankly most people get a couple colds a year no matter what they do. Some people swear by echinacea taken at the first onset of symptoms, but the data aren't very convincing.

My general rule is that when headaches occur more than 1-2 days per week I add preventative meds to the abortive meds. ...Read more

Many factors: Nightmares are both common & normal. We seem to notice & recall unpleasant dreams much more than pleasant ones. They may arise from fear, stress, pain, discomfort, etc, but they don't necessarily represent real life psych dysfunction.
