Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that you are suffering from so much pain, however a clear cut diagnosis has not been made, and hence, correct treatment has not been started.

I agree that the most likely diagnosis in your case is migraine, which can cause repeated headaches, associated with nausea or vomiting. There is increased sensitivity to light and noise. You may require a brain scan to exclude other causes of headache.

For migraine, you should be on preventive therapy, as you have frequent headaches. The options include topiramate, beta blockers and divalproex.
I hope it helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.

Wishing you good health,
