I started to have episodes of severe headache before few days. I have it for about thirty-five minutes at maximum. I am fine for a minute and the next minute, something breaks the front of the head. I feel very dizzy and my sight disappears slightly like everything goes black. I am unable to talk as it hurts too much. I get collapsed and I am unaware of my surroundings. It lasts for a couple of minutes before it gets progressively better. It continues for a day and it hurts a little after getting better. I have body ache for about thirty minutes to one hour. I usually drop anything in my hand after it hits me for a few seconds. For example, I suddenly dropped my phone out with shaking in my hands, and then I had a migraine.



Welcome to

A migraine headache can be very severe and it interferes with day-to-day life causing lots of pain. Since you are going through this problem at a high frequency, I would suggest you start a prophylactic medication for the headache. This medication will help to reduce the frequency of the headache that is the number of headaches that you have for a week or a month. As you are not getting the aura before the headache starts, it is difficult for you to take medication to reduce the severity of the headache before the start of the actual headache. Let me know if you want to start taking prophylactic medications.
