Thank you for posting your query.

The most likely diagnosis in your case is chronic migraine.

If you are having frequent headaches (more than twice a month), you should also start preventive medications such as flunarizine, beta blockers, topiramate, divalproex, etc. With these medicines, your headache frequency will reduce.

If the headache is not responding to the above, botox therapy is also recommended.

Please discuss this with your neurologist.

Wishing you good health,
