Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If high blood pressure has been measured and not found to be high then you can safely take an over the counter pain killer like Ibuprofen. If the headaches are chronic though, Ibuprofen shouldn't be used daily continuously, a preventive medication like amitriptyline may be considered.

I hope you feel better soon.
