In brief: Full evaluation

Migraines don't occur daily.
The word "migraine" doesn't mean "bad headache". You have chronic daily headaches, which can be very difficult to treat. The key is proper diagnosis of the situation. Why do you headaches? You need a full medical evaluation to assertain the underlying the reasons you are in pain, then treat the cause.

In brief: Beta Blockers

Prophylactic migraine treatment includes a class of drugs known as beta blockers.
These may be helpful and usually are well tolerated unless you have a slow heart rate or low blood pressure. Also one should look into utilizing a low inflammatory diet in migraines of this frequency.
