Brief Answer:
Possibly migraine

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I have noted your symptoms and they are suggestive of migraine.

You should be on preventive treatment for migraine, to reduce the severity and frequency of headaches in future.

For relief of headache, you may take Etoricoxib or rizatriptan tablets.

Also, eat food on time, sleep well and avoid prolonged exposure to sunlight.

I hope my reply has helped you.

I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.

Brief Answer:
Cholesterol is elevated.

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for getting back.

Cholesterol levels are elevated. Go for a low fat diet and do regular exercises. Recheck lipid profile after three months, if the cholesterol is still high, medications would be needed.

Fasting blood sugar is also slightly high, for that low calorie diet should be started.
