Brief Answer:
Primary headaches to consider.

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thanks for using HCM.

I have read your question and understand your concerns.

First, I don't think yours is a situation that is risking your life.

Possible conditions that may cause those symptoms are cluster headaches (a primary headache), sinusitis, anxiety and stress disorder.

I think you can use OTC medications such Ibuprofen 3x400 mg for one week in order to control symptoms.
Trying to relax and rest for few days also should help.

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Greetings.
