How to get rid of annoying migraine headaches?

A/W Dr. Bragg. Triggers for migraine headaches can include things like stress, odors/scents, neck tension, alcohol, hormonal changes (such as menses), lights, smoke or other fumes, ^'ed physical activity, particular foods, becoming overheated ; sleep patterns. Know your trigger ; avoid them. Your neurologist can prescribed preventive medication as well.
Avoid triggers. The primary intervention would be to look for environmental or behavioral triggers that are setting off your migraines and avoid these. Common triggers include stress, sleep deprivation, alcohol, and foods containing the Amino Acid tyramine (e.g. Aged cheese). If this fails, ask your pcp or a neurologist if you are a candidate for medication to abort migraines or prevent them in the first place.
Tough question. Migraines, like tmj/tmd, may never be cured, just maintained. Thorough tests are needed to hopefully determine some triggers of the migraines and help you educate yourself on what to avoid. Don't rule out tmj/tmd.

Prevention is key. It sounds like you need to get on a prophylactic medication to reduce the number and severity of the headaches. I really consider this to be the mainstay of treatment. This will reduce your need for analgesics in the long run. I suggest you see a neurologist to discuss this. She will assess if triptans and migraine drug combos are suitable for you. I hope you feel better.

Diary. Start a diary for your headache and see if you can identify a pattern or source.
Situational stress? I agree with dr. Rothwell that a diary is the first step, since so many different things can cause or worsen migraines. People susceptible to migraines can be made worse with situational and/or chronic stress. For each person, the source of this stress is unique. A counselor can help you figure it out. In my experience as a counselor, I've found that taming the "inner critic" is very useful!
