Thank you for posting your query.

For migraine pain, you should start preventive medications, as you are suffering from pain for 4-5 days per month. These medications would reduce the severity and frequency of headaches. Commonly used drugs include flunarizine, beta blockers and topiramate.

For severe headache, you may use rizatriptan tablets to get relief.

For varicose veins, you can use leg stockings while standing and walking. Also, if possible, please avoid standing for long duration.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
