Headache is one of the most commonly misdiagnosed condition. Migraine
is a very specific condition in which there will be severe headache
(usually on one side only) and is associated with nausea, vomiting
and visual problems. Apart from these, there will be intolerance to bright light and noise. There may be family history of similar problem.
There are many ways to treat migraine (both to abort the headaches
as well as prevent them). Consult a psychiatrist/neurologist
for detailed evaluation after which a suitable medicine can be started.
Most importantly, one should not forget the role of lifestyle modification in the management of migraine. Regular sleep and eating habits, avoidance of tea/coffee/chocolates and minimising stress are some of the factors which should also be addressed.
