In brief: Migraines

While there's no cure, there are 2 types of meds for migraines.
One is called abortive, which is used for immediate pain relief, and you take this type of meds as needed. The other is called preventive, which is used to reduce the severity and frequency of migraines, and you take this type of meds daily. You should also identify and avoid your headache triggers. A headache diary can help you.

In brief: May not

Migraines can probably controlled, may be difficult to entirely get rid of.
