In brief: Treatment
If they are occurring weekly, i would give something to prevent them. There are many different medications that i use.

In brief: Headache journal
If you're diagnosed with migraines - there are some great prescription medications you can try.
Otherwise, it might be helpful to keep a headache journal - jot down what you at ate, your activity, then intensity and length of the headache when it happens... And also if you noticed any triggers. Bring it to your doctor and hopefully you can get them under control!
