The treatment plan is decided according to the onset of headaches, it's duration, severity and associated symptoms of sleep, anxiety, stress etc. Consult a psychiatrist or headache specialist for the same.

It's normal as 90% of males engage in that act but you should not do it excessively as it may hamper your routine work and also you should not do it in the public area. Try to engage in other mind diverting activities like reading, writing etc.

Periods ke time aids ka khatra jyada hota hai, condom hamesha use karna chahiye, migraine me normal painkillers kha sakte ho par doctor job dikhana jaruri hai, masturbation once or twice daily will not affect you but if you do more than that then it will affect you.
