Brief Answer:
Take pain killers and get a brain imaging

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Get a CT or MRI of brain to rule out any brain lesion.
Migraine headache may sometimes feel like throbbing with nausea and abnormal health and aversion to sound and light.
Take pain killers for headache for now.
Is the anxiety disorder severe and associated with sleep disturbances?
