Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. Based on the description, your pain is most likely due to migraines. These cause headaches and pain is usually on one side, however, it can affect both sides in some cases. The pain lasts for a few hours, upto a maximum of 72 hours. There may be a feeling of nausea or vomiting. Since you have frequent pains, you should be on preventive medications such as topiramate, flunarizine or divalproex, which reduce the severity and frequency of headaches. For immediate pain relief, you may take rizatriptan tablets. I hope my reply has helped. I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
