Brief Answer:
Take medication and avoid triggering factors

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.

Migraine usually involves half part of your head and associated with nausea.
Pain is severe and aggravated by triggering factors like irritant smell, travelling.

After clinical examination, medications for migraine like sumatriptans can be started consulting your doctor. For nausea you can take anti emetic like ondansetran.

Lifestyle Modifications will help to reduce headache episodes
- Proper nutrition
- Regular physical activity
- Adequate sleep
- Stress reduction strategies
• Identify and avoid triggers (e.g., tobacco smoke, strong odours, or sprays).
• Address workplace ergonomics. (Attention to workplace ergonomics and instruction in self-care of neck tension can have a dramatic effect on headache frequency.)
