Brief Answer:
Symptoms are suggestive of migraine with associated vertigo.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms. The most likely cause of your headaches is migraine with associated vertigo.

For relief of symptoms, you can take Naproxen (for relief frim headache) and betahistine (for relief from giddiness) tablets.

As you have been having frequent headaches, you should consider treatment to prevent future headaches (with flunarizine or propranolol tablets).

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,

In migraine, additional symptoms such as nausea. vomiting, dizziness, etc are present, while these are absent in tension headache. Also, headache may get worse when exposed to light or noise, in patients with migraine (but that is not the case with tension headache.
