Welcome to Healthcare-Magic
Greetings of the day

Dear Ms

If the pain has been of short duration then it's likely to be tension headache. Tension headache usually presents with temporal pain and neck pain.

I would suggest you the following

1. Analgesic like Ibuprofen

2. Adequate rest and sleep : Ensuring 6 to 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep will be beneficial

3. Consume your meals on time

Do get back to me if you need any further assistance

Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy life

take care

Best Regards
Dr Shobha Deepak
