Thank you for posting your query.

Symptoms are suggestive of muscle tension headache.

Medications that can help are amitriptyline taken at night.

For relief of pain, diclofenac or ibuprofen can be taken twice or thrice daily.

Physiotherapy including IFT and ultrasound would also help.

I hope it helps. Please get back if you have any more queries.

Best wishes,
