Thanks for posting your query.

After going through your history, I feel the possibility of vascular headache/migraine.

As you had previous history of Epilepsy, I would suggest you to get the EEG (Electroencephalogram) done to know the electrical disturbances.

You need to get physically evaluated by Neurologist for proper initiation of management.

There are effective drugs available for the treatment of migraine nowadays. There are two ways of managing the migraine, preventive and curative. I suggest you to consult the Neurologist for the same.

To avoid the acute attack of headache, avoid fasting, sunlight, foods like chocolate and late nights.

I hope, this answers your query. I will be available for follow up queries if any.
