Neurologist 's  Response
Hello!

Welcome on Healthcaremagic!
My name is Dr. Aida and I am glad to attend you!

Regarding your concern, you should know that wine and alcohol may trigger migraine attacks. For this reason, I would recommend having some rest and taking plenty of water. Painkillers can help against the pain.
If your headache persists, I would recommend consulting with a neurologist for a physical exam and some tests:
- a brain MRI study
- complete blood count for anemia or infection
- PCR, sedimentation rate for inflammation.
Hope you will find this answer helpful!
Best wishes!
