Frequent headache and migraine

Answered by: Dr Nur Syuhada binti Zulkifli

I am a woman age 37 y/o, with severe migraine issues since few years ago. I will have headache if I missed caffeine intake or when its too hot or too cold. Now that I have a baby (my fifth child age 7 months), I am afraid to take any pain killer since I am still fully breastfeed. What will be the best way to help with this migraine issues I am facing? Safe medication? Remedies? Or should I consult specialist for further details.
