Hello,

Your symptoms seem to be related to migraine. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Acetaminophen to relieve the pain and inflammation. If the symptoms continue, I suggest using prescription medication such as Triptans or consult a neurologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
