Problems at the base of the skull or neck, are most always tension based. Massage therapy in your shoulders and neck would probably be the best place to start.
After living a very stressful life, complete with migraines, for several years, I literally developed a huge knot at the base of my skull. I looked like a hunch back. Chiropractors are good for realigning things, but it's just temporary. You always have to make repeat visits. Once I started getting the stress out of my life, I started going to a massage therapist, and after several sessions, my hump was gone...completely. There was a huge difference, and no more headaches from tension.
Good luck and let us know how are you are doing.
Not sure if you are still checking this board or not, but you may want to try MAXALT. My wife's migraines were not touched by Imitrex, Topamax, and many others...
