Q: I have had 4 headaches in one week. The pain is on one side of my head usually behind my eye. What?

I went to the doctor about my headaches and was giving midrin for migranes. I get at least 3-4 headaches a week. Is this normal? The pain is so bad i get nauseated and have to lay down. It is usually one the right side behind my eye and temple area. Im really starting to get scared and its depressing me becaue I have a husband and two kids to worry about, and they really interrupt my time with them and work.

Hi Danafella!

 

Migraine is a genetice neuological disease, for which there is no cure.

 

If you are experiencing 2-3 Migraines a month, then you would be a candidate for preventive treatment.

 

See - Migraine Preventive Medications: Too Many to Give Up!

 

Also, you may want to ask your doctor about Triptans, also known as abortives, which are used to abort the migraine process.

 

See - Preventive, Abortive and Rescue Medications, What's the Difference?

 

Good Luck!
