Thanks for posting your query.
There are 15-20 types of headache have been defined and the exact diagnosis is defined on the basis of defined history.
Does he has tears from eyes/ running nose/ nausea
or vomiting/ exacerbation on exposure of light?
There may be possibilities of migraine
with weakness or cerebro-vascular accidents.
You should consult with physician/ neurologist
and should go for thorough neurological examinations.
You should also go for CT/ MRI brain imaging for clarification.
Presence of throbbing pain
, eye symptoms, along with weakness suggest migraine (most common type of headache).
Treatment depends on the diagnosed disease.
