I would go to see a doctor.  What medicines have you tried?  It could be from many things.  I get them from too much sun and if i eat food with MSG in them.

I would see a doctor, I get them when I'm not on birth control very often. Its hormones most of the time. But even on BC I still get them and I need meds at that point. So sometimes even if you figure out the what's causing you still get them and need meds.

I get them frequently. Weather is a big trigger for me, lack of sleep, too much noise, certain smalle. IT SUCKS. I have tried a few different meds with no luck. I just deal and sleep them off as much as possible.

I got them a lot while pregnant. I found some neck stretches that really helped releave the pain. 
I also found that taking a bath with low light and some lemon oil in the bath seemed to help.

I use to get them. My Dr put me on some meds and they did nothing. Then I started to see a chiropractor. He had me write a log or foods and drinks and when I got them. I found out that caffeine was a trigger for me. So I cut way back on it. Between that and adjustments. In the last 10 years I have only had one and that was after my third. Due to high hormones.

I got what they referred to as "low grade" migraines EVERYDAY for 4 years before someone finally diagnosed me correctly.  My neuologist put me on Topamax (50mg in the am and 100mg at night).  From what I read, though, it is a difficult drug to tolerate so it is hit or miss, but it worked for me.  However, about a month ago something changed and I am back to getting the headaches, full strength nearly everyday again.

Have you monitored what you are eatign to see if a food is a trigger?   Any diet soda gives me a terrible migraine, some b/c pills didn't agree with me either.   Have you added anyting new to your home, like paint, carpet, flooring, new cleaners??  Any of these could be a trigger as well.   When I feel one coming on, I will drink a bit of caffiene, take Excedrin Migraine Relief and try to find a dark place with limited sound.

I think a journal is a good idea. If you can find the cause of the migraines you wont have to constantly be on meds for them. I got severe headaches (borderline migraines) for years on an almost daily basis. The drs kept telling me it could be a number of things causing them and they just couldnt pin point it. Eventually I started getting migraines and to make along story short we found they were caused by my birth control. Have been on a low estrogen birth control since and so far so good.
