People suffering from migraine are recommended to take Vitamin B complex that contains 100 mg of niacin.
Fish, liver, sunflower seeds, nuts, tomatoes, green leafy vegetables, whole wheat, and yeast are good sources of vitamins that can treat migraine.

Most headaches are minor, and can treat with a pain killer..But some are serious that worsens steadily. If it develops suddenly/severe/persists for several days, and accompanies fever, loss of consciousness, vision blurring, paralysis etc then you must get medical attention immediately..
