Looks like atypical migraine or tension headache. Some women reported problem of neck and head pain during periods and the reasons are unknown. The treatment was supposedly a mild analgesic to reduce the pain and spasm.

I think it is good to get a thorough evaluation from a doctor / neurologist in your area. If Advil does not help it needs a better pain medication to control may be a sedative too.
