Transaction ref 7cu79502AR064270c I'm not prone to headaches normally
Brief Answer: sounds benign headache Detailed Answer: Hi The description sounds benign headache something tension or dehydration related headache. Low blood sugar and sleepless XXXXXXX can cause similar headaches sometimes. I also suggest to measure the blood sugar, blood pressure and heart rate during the episode of headache. Please see a local doctor immediately if you have any one of the following or all of the following. Blurring of vision, vomiting or weakness in the face or one side of the body. For bearable headache you can wait to take a pain reliever like Oral Acetaminophen 500mg. Hope this is useful.
