Psychiatrist 's  Response
lmportant point to be noted is that head ache is noticed when there is stress
I agree stress can precipitate migrane but those symptoms are different
AS stress is cause she has to go for stress mangement program with a psychologist Stressors to be identifief by the psychologist and solution to be worked out for long term relief Help of drug to abort the head ache is to be take in the form of mouth disloving tablet just before on set of head ache or when stress is perceived
It will be better if she is on long acting anti anxiety drug and Betablockers long acting Dugs will be decided by a psychiatrist
