There is no specific test to help diagnose migraine, so your doctor will ask about your symptoms, frequency, and duration of the pain, as well as your family history of the condition. He or she will also perform a general physical examination to assess whether the headaches are caused by muscle tension or a brain disorder. If considered necessary, he or she will request a computed tomography or MRI of the brain.
Treatment consists of avoiding the frequency and severity of migraines, managing the factors that trigger them, including lifestyle changes, such as:
- Controlling your stress.
- Getting enough sleep and go to bed at the same time each night.
- Avoiding excess alcohol and caffeine.
- Avoiding being overweight and obese.
- Improving your eating habits.
The use of various drugs also helps prevent some migraines and make them less painful.
