In brief: Migraine Rx

There are few ways to handle migraine headaches.
First, make sure it is a migraine. There should be throbbing or pressure, normally on one side, associated with nausea or light sensitivity. Next, remove triggers. These can be foodstuffs, sleep problems, stress... If they are common, consider a preventer. Some of these are meds. For occasional attacks, use a migraine blocker in the first 30 m
