I am young adult (under 25) old suffering from migraines at the moment. It comes quite frequently about 3 or 4 times a week but I recently suffered from a severe one which each time I tilted my head I would receive the headache reaction. Now this is getting really annoying and I am on Half Inderal 80mg. I am also working full time a week (37.5 hours weekly) Each time I come home I have a slight headache but I have never had headache liek this before work. I am taking my meds everyday and still is not changing anything. Can anyone suggest to me what's best action to take I can't seem to be always having days off from work as sick as it doesn't sound too good so is it worth reducing my hours? please advise.
Ps: I have had my blood test which looks normal, also had MRI scan that has come back as OK.

Thank you

Doctors are now starting to recommend to keep a diary to track your headaches and to see what could potentially be triggering them, like lifestyle, things if your diet, sleep patterns, to maybe more specific things. It will help out a lot, because you don't have to remember information from some time ago. If you have an iPhone, you should look into this study that is testing a headache diary right now. It was built by research experts in the field of pain, headaches and the use of new technology to deliver care.
