In brief: Identify triggers
There are certain foods and aspects of lifestyle that can trigger or worsen headaches and migraines.
The best way to identify triggers is to maintain a headache diary and keep a list of foods eaten before your migraine. Common triggers include chocolate, caffeine, cheese, msg, processed meats, alcohol, smoking/being around smoke, stress, skipping meals, lack of sleep or too much sleep.

There are many medications called triptans, including imitrex, (sumatriptan) maxalt, and others.
Be seen and diagnosed, and your doctor can prescribe the proper medication.

In brief: Options
There are several different options for both the acute and chronic treatment of migraines.
You can use otc medications such as tylenol, (acetaminophen) advil, excedrin, or medications provided by a physician such as imitrex. There are also several different options that can be used to prevent migraines. I would suggest discussing this with your provider to see what medication might be right for you.
