The most likely cause for your recurrent headaches is migraine.

In this condition, headaches may affect one or both sides of head and may be accompanied with nausea or vomiting. Pain gets worse with bright light or sounds.

Since you have frequent headaches, you require preventive medications such as flunarizine, propranolol or divalproex to prevent headaches in future.

For pain relief, you may take naprosyn or rizatriptan tablets.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
