Migraines, severe headaches, dizziness, loss of memory. Cure for symptoms?

Hi I am a 21 year old female. I have had migraines since I was in high school and take medicine every night to control them. However over the past few months I have noticed getting migraines and horrible headaches almost daily. I am having some memory problems and have been feeling very tired all the time and all I want to do is sleep, I have also been feeling very dizzy. I was wondering what could be going on.

Thank you for posting your query.

You are most likely suffering from chronic migraine with chronic daily headache (defined as someone who gets headaches more than 15 days in a month).

In this situation, one needs to start the preventive therapy for migraine, to prevent the recurrence of headaches. Medications in this category include beta blockers, calcium channel blockers, topiramate, divalproex, botulinum toxin injections, etc.

In addition, you need to ensure adequate sleep, proper meal timings, avoidance of stress, etc.

Wishing you good health,
