Hi Dear ,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of migraine headache which could be due to sensory stimuli like light and loud sound, aged cheeses, salty foods and caffeinated product, food additives, stress and changes in wake-sleep pattern. Need not to worry. You should start with preventive measures first. If you didn't use preventive treatment for migraine headaches, three drug classes used for this purpose are with doctor's prescription are antidepressants, antiepileptics and calcium channel blockers. Severe migraine can also be treated by the use of ergot alkaloid drugs. These drugs need to be taken under the supervision of your doctor. Hence please do consult neurologist for prescription of drugs. You should focus on diet and take plenty of fluids.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
