My wife has a bad headache for the last 2 days. What should she do? Is this a sign for migraine? If it is what should we do? Thank you doctors

In brief: Insufficient data

"Headache" is like "car trouble": Vague & uninformative by itself.
There are H/As to worry about (rare), & H/As that may be severe but not a sign of a dangerous condition (common). Look up migraines (eg on the American Headache Society website). If your wife's headache fits the criteria, it will go away. See your PCP about getting meds to treat the next one.
