In brief: Basilar migraine
What you did is good - but this is never preventative - they just merely reduce the likelihood of developing them. Also if you have them then doing what you did may help.
Sometimes no matter how good you are - you still get the symptoms - the body is complicated.

In brief: Genetics
Basilar migraine is a migraine variant that occurs mainly during adolescence, and is likely present in patients who have a genetic susceptibility in their families.
Attacks may be triggered due to chemical additives in foods, such as msg, nitrites, aspartame. Migraine preventatives might work, so discuss with your doctor the possible use of petadolex, riboflavin, co-q-10.
