Question: Hi, i am getting severe head-ache once in a week at least. I am suffering from this past 1year, but it became worse now. It use to go off if i take rest for sometime. But these days it became severe, especially when i travel in the flight, driving car for more than 4hours. Also, i am getting head-ache when i sleep less than 6hours. Please suggest.

Migraine.

Detailed Answer:
Hi xxxxxxxxxx
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

Your history of headache is typically suggestive of Migraine.
In this scenario, I would suggest you to be on prophylactic medicines like- Amitriptyline, Flunarizine, Propranolol. In addition, at the time of acute headache, you need to take medicines to terminate the migraine attack like Triptans(Rizatriptan, Sumatriptan).

Further, its vital to avoid all those trigger factors, which precipitate your headache attack-take adequate sleep and rest, avoid too much driving etc.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions, I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
