I have gotten migraines for a long time. I also get sick to the stomach and sometimes throw up because of them. One thing I have learned is to avoid things that trigger migraines or make them worse. Food is a big one for me. Also, chemicals, smells, perfumes. Maybe switching to natural cleaners can help. Sleep habits, if I get to bed too late or sleep in too long that can cause a headache. Here are some common foods to avoid: MSG, Nitrates and Nitrites that are in many processed meats, cheeses that are aged for a long time, fresh yeast-risen baked goods, aspartame, onions, citrus and bananas. I have gotten some of this information from the book Heal Your Headache by David Buchholz, M.D. I have found this book to be very helpful in understanding and avoiding my headaches. Chiropractor also helps for me when I can afford it (: I agree with the previous comment, you should make sure it's not anything serious as well.
