The location and characteristics of the head ache are suggestive of stress/tension headache. He can take Advil 400 mg up to 4 times to help relieve the pain. Also try relaxation techniques like exercise or yoga to relieve stress.
If the headache worsens or he develops other symptoms like vision problems, vomiting, early morning headache, fever, please be advised to follow up with primary provider.
