Based on your description you are probably suffering from tension headache which at times can be very annoying. You can try these simple suggestions for pain relief. First, use any simple analgesic like paracetamol, ibuprofen, naproxen along with domperidone (antiemetic) as soon as the headache starts (10-15 min) & see how pain responds. Secondly use deep breathing exercise, head massage, neck massage & daily walks in natures surrounding for 20-30 minutes in the pain free interval. Third, maintain a pain diary where after resolution of headache, you shall rate your headache out of 10 & compare your scores everyday for 10 days. I hope by all this, you should be free of headche in 2 weeks or so. Good luck
