thank you for your query.

your symptoms mostly point towards a symptom complex Menstrual Migrane.Although only women suffer from "hormone headache," both men's and women's headaches are prompted by hormones.

serotonin is the primary hormonal trigger..Menstrual migraines are primarily caused by estrogen, the female sex hormone that specifically regulates the menstrual cycle fluctuations throughout the cycle. When the levels of estrogen and progesterone change, women will be more vulnerable to headaches.

The menstrual migraine's symptoms are similar to migraine without aura. It begins as a one-sided, throbbing headache accompanied by nausea, vomiting, or sensitivity to bright lights and sounds and aversion to foods.

treatment include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), dihydroergotamine (DHE), the triptans, and the combination of aspirin, acetaminophen, and caffeine.

hence its not a reason to worry,

thank you,
wishing you good health.
