Thanks for the query
Headache at this age could be due to many causes like temporal arteritis
, bleeding in the brain, tumor of the brain and tension headache
. Your current symptoms are not suggestive of herpes infection. I will advise you to get evaluated by a local neurologist
who will examine you and do the blood test
(mainly erythrocyte sedimentation rate- to rule out temporal arteritis) and CT scan of the brain. If all these tests are negative, you may try medications like amitriptiline/nor-tryptiline etc.
Hope this helps
