    more, severe migraines??

    started getting migraines when i was 15, i'm guessing because i started taking an oral contraceptive. they all made me really sick. but even after i stopped taking them the headaches continued. i knew mostly what caused them and tended to avoid my triggers but you can't control everything. well as of this last month, i've had at least 5 (waay more than normal. usually like 3 tops!) and they seem to get worse. my usual remedies won't work.

    any advice? should i see a regular doctor? i always had them under control until now and they are interrupting my daily life, including caring for my kids.
