Thank you for your query.
It seems like you are having motion sickness due to the long car drive.
The headache, nausea are the symptoms of motion sickness.
I advise you to take promethazine or meclizine in prescribed dosage.
Take rest till you get rid of the symptoms.
Eat soft food.
Drink plenty of water and oral fluids.
And consult your doctor for the prescription of the drugs for the motion sickness.
Hope I have answered your query.

Pediatrician Dr. Himanshi Kashyap's  Response
The motion sickness as you said should be present only during the travel and usually should have settled with a vomit or with few hours post travel.3days for the symptom to continue is too long. I think you might have a viral infection at present and you should seek the advise of your docter who will be able to examine and advise accordingly.
