I often suffer from migraines to the point of experiencing nausea/vomiting. It has started when I was 8 years old. Do I need a brain scan? What are the steps I could take? Thanks

ok

If the symptoms are persisting for more than 8 years so it is unlikely to be anything serious

You just need preventative measures for migraine

Avoid lack of sleep,flashing lights,dehydration,foods like chocolate and cheese etc

You can use Propranolol to prevent the attacks as well

Please do let me know if you have any other question
