Thank you for posting your query.

Your symptoms are suggestive of acute migraine attack.

The symptoms of migraine attack, such as throbbing or pulsating headache, affecting one or both sides of head can persist for upto 72 hours.

In your case, the severe symptoms of migraine attack have subsided, but the minor symptoms are persisting.

For relief of these symptoms, you could use naproxen or rizatriptan or sumatriptan.

Wishing you good health,
