Thank you for posting your query.
Your symptoms are suggestive of migraine, a type of vascular headache
, which is often accompanied by increased sensitivity to light (photophobia
) and phono phobia (increased sensitivity to sound).
You would improve with preventive medications such as topiramate
or beta blockers to reduce the severity and frequency of headaches
For relief of acute pain, you can take rizatriptan
I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you require any additional information.
Wishing you good health,
