Thank you for posting your query.

Most likely, you are suffering from a condition called as migraine. In this condition, frequent headaches can occur, which usually get exacerbated with exposure to bright light or noise. In some cases, head bath or road travel can also bring it on.

You need to start preventive medications to stop the headaches from recurring. A neurologist consultation would be useful.

Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
