If you have symptoms suspicious of migraines, the best first step is to consult with your primary care doctor and/or a neurologist to confirm that this is, in fact, migraines. If you are diagnosed with migraines, a trial of lifestyle changes, alternative therapies, and migraine medications will likely be recommended.
