Brief Answer: Headache Detailed Answer: Hello. Delighted to be able to help. There are three possible diagnoses: 1.-Migraine. The pain is on one half of the head and causes nausea, vomiting (with stomach ache),intolerance to light and noise but no chills. 2.-Tension Headache The pain is all over the head, and causes nausea-vomiting(with stomach ache)but without intolerance to light and noise and without chills. 3.-Viral Infection(the most likely diagnosis) Headache, stomach ache,chills and diziness are common symptoms of viral infections. In my opinion Ibuprofen 600 mg thrice a day+Omeprazole 20 mg per day can be taken for treating your symptoms. Usually the symptoms of virus infections persist for 72 hours. Please,consult your local doctor to confirm diagnosis and for prescription. I Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help.If you do not have any clarifications, please don’t forget to evaluate my answer. I wish you good health.

Brief Answer: Painkillers Detailed Answer: Hello.Delighted to be able to help. The adverse effects of Ibuprofen are not significants(especially if is combined with Omeprazole 20 mg per day).Other option (with fewer adverse effects but less powerful for headache) is to take Acetaminophen 1000 mg thrice a day. Please consult your local doctor for prescription. I Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions,I will be happy to help.If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion. I wish you good health.
