I think I've narrowed it to menstrual migraines that I'm suffering. What's the best course of action for treatment?
Take meds B4 period. Try taking a triptan (i suggest frova) beginning 2 days before your period starts and continue for 2-3 days into your period.
Menstrual migraines. Two approaches: 1. Just treat the migraine. Best medication is imitrex (sumatriptan). A combination of an anti-nausea drug and a pain killer (motrin, fioricet, etc) is an alternative. 2. Alternatively, you could try medication, like birth control pills, etc., that suppress the periods.
