(HealthDay News) -- Tracking your migraines can better prepare you to prevent or treat these often-debilitating headaches.

The Womenshealth.gov website suggests what to log in a headache diary:

  • The date, time and duration of your migraine.

  • What you were doing and where you were when the migraine began.

  • Anything you drank or ate within 24 hours of the migraine.

  • If you are a woman, the duration of your menstrual period.
