Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms can be related to migraine.

Dizziness and lightheadness are common symptoms of migraine.

Migraine can be triggered by many factors.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medication to treat the headache such as Ibuprofen 400 mg tree tablets a day.

I also recommend to rest and massage the neck and the temple area.

I suggest doing warm showers or baths and drinking caffeinated beverage in small amounts.

If the headache continue you may consult a neurologist for prescription medications such as Triptans.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
