Is having two or three Migraines a week normal?
With all the preventive options we have today, there's no reason to suffer that many Migraines. It's much easier on your body and your lifestyle to find an effective daily preventive that will not only reduce the frequency of your Migraine attacks, but usually the severity as well. A neurologist is a good place to start. Some neurologists have treated more Migraineurs and done more continuing education in the field than others. If you know anyone else with Migraines and can ask them about their neurologist, it's always helpful to know in advance that the neurologist you're going to see is successfully treating Migraine patients. Your primary physician may also have recommendations for you.
