Brief Answer: Tension headache Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the follow-up details. The kind of headache that you have described appears to be a tension headache and will need regular treatment for a few weeks to take care of it. Ibuprofen is alright for the pain relief but the illness is not taken care of. For the patients who visit my clinic, i suggest them to take Tab Tryptomer 25mg and this medication improves tension headache a lot. I advise them to take this medication at night for a few weeks. Regarding acute pain relief, if there is any headache you may first try paracetamol for the pain relief. Ibuprofen is a bit stronger NSAID and can cause stomach upset. You may also take some anti acids like ranitidine when ever you take these NSAID. Hope I am able to answer your concerns. If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you. If not, you may close the discussion and if possible you may rate the answer for me, so that I get a good feedback.
