Thank you for posting your query.

First of all, I would like to reassure you that your symptoms do not suggest any serious underlying brain disease.

The most likely cause of your headache could be an acute migraine attack.

For pain relief, you can take diclofenac or ibuprofen tablets.

Please watch for the following warning symptom such as repeated vomiting, double vision, weakness of arm or leg. If you develop any of these, you may see a neurologist and get a CT scan of brain done.

Best wishes,

Thank you for getting back.

Once you start the medications (ibuprofen or diclofenac), your headache should subside in a day or two.
