Brief Answer:
blood supply to brain is reduced due to problems in Blood Vessels

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Welcome to HealthCareMagic.com I am Dr.J XXXXXXX Anto Bruno Mascarenhas. I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help you.

Explanation :
Headache which is relieved by Plavix 75mg suggests that the blood supply to brain is reduced due to problems in Blood Vessels

Advice :
You have to consult a Neurosurgeon and undergo Angiogram of Cerebral Vessels. DSA or MR Angio or CT Angio can be done.

MR Angio does not have Radiation
DSA is the most accurate, but it is an invasive procedure

Hope you found the answer helpful.

Best Wishes for Speedy Recovery
