I have studied your case.
As per your history there is possibility of pain due to migraine.

Pain is severe and aggravated by triggering factors like cold air, irritant smell, travelling.

If you were my patient, I would clinically confirm diagnosis.
After clinical examination, medications for migraine like sumatriptans can be started consulting your doctor.

Lifestyle Modifications will help to reduce headache episodes
- Proper nutrition
- Regular physical activity
- Adequate sleep
- Stress reduction strategies
- Identify and avoid triggers

Also this can be due to cervical disc.
