Brief Answer:
Take treatment and prevention as advised

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
I have gone through your question and understand your concern.

Pain killer like Tramadol or tapantadol can be used for relief. But I am not sure it is available over the counter. You might need to visit a doctor - ER or urgent care clinic.

Management of migraine requires preventive steps.
Avoid fasting, excessive tea or coffee or chocolates.
Take timely breakfast and lunch.
Migraine prophylaxis drugs like amitriptyline can be used daily for headache as well as sleep disturbances.
Other prophylaxis drugs like flunarizine, topiramate,divalproate can be used.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
Do get back to me for further information.
Regards
