Get evaluated by the neurologist.

Detailed Answer:

Hi,

Thanks for posting your query.

Migraine is not a life threatening disorder.

Examination by a neurologist is required to rule out other causes of chronic headache.

Drugs are available for chronic migraine and are prescribed according to patient profile and choice.

Lifestyle modifications are the most important step in managing chronic migraine.

I hope this answers your query.

Take care.
