Hello there,

Thanks for writing in.

Could you please provide me with some additional details?

1. Any fever/ cough/ cold? If yes, then headache might be due to sinusitis.
2. Any nausea, vomiting, intolerance to loud noise/bright lights, along with the headache? Is it a throbbing headache ? If yes, it could be migraine.
3. Your age ,gender and other medical history .

Other possibilities are diabetes, hypoglycemia, dehydration(not drinking enough water).

As a temporary measure; you can have a tylenol / paracetamol.
Drink at least 8- 10 glasses of water a day.

Have a great day.

Dr.Divya Kuttikrishnan
