Suffering from severe bad headache and chills. Cause for symptoms?

My husband has a bad headache on the right side of his head along with strong chills but no fever . He has had this for three days now and also has a feeling of fear. Do you know what this could be. It came on suddenly and he never gets headaches . He won t go to the doctor. He also seemed a little out of it but is better now. I reviewed the questions for a stroke but all seemed okay.

Thanks for writing your query.

Single sided headaches are usually caused by Migraine.
You should get him clinically examined and investigated for other causes of headaches.
Following investigations will be helpful :-
1. Complete Blood Count(CBC).
2. X-Ray PNS
3. Urine examination.
4. MRI of head.
5. Blood pressure monitoring.

You can give him Paracetamol 500 mg along with Omeprazole 20 mg and Domperidone 10 mg for relief from headache.

Migraine headache are triggered by :-
1. Lack of sleep.
2. Missed meal.
3. Physical/mental stress.
4. Dairy products.
5. Foods containing MSG.
6. Cigarette/Alcohol.

Avoiding the trigger factor will help to control the headache.

I hope this is helpful to you.
