Hello.Effectively diagnose your symptoms indicate migraine.Currently very good treatments for migraine, both to prevent the emergence of crises and to treat crisis.Also reported that migraine attacks are caused by factors such as stress, menstruation, poor sleep,alcohol or excesses of food.Si a treatment for migraine has not been effective, your doctor should try another.The currently most used drugs for migraine are serotonin receptor agonists.I wish you good health.
