Hello doctor,

I am a 19 year old female. Is it normal to get two migraines in a day, within nine hours of each other? I have been getting them more often in the last few months, roughly once a month for the last six months. But all of a sudden, I have gotten two today.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • A migraine is an episodic primary headache. If a headache is throbbing, with moderate to severe pain, usually on one side of the head, and associated with nausea and vomiting, it is known a migraine.
  • Once it appears, typically it lasts for 4 to 72 hours based on its severity. So the attack may occur twice, thrice or more in a day.
  • The major triggers are:
  1. Stress and anxiety.
  2. Sinusitis.
  3. Changes in food habits.
  4. High salt intake
  5. Intake of more soft foods or cold foods.
  • It can be confirmed with a CT scan, MRI scan or an X-ray of the sinuses.
  • You can manage it through Ayurvedic medicines once it is diagnosed as migraine.
  • Do meditation to relax your mind and avoid stress.
  • Avoid smoking and drinking, and cold or spicy foods.
