How old are you? Have you had same episodes previously? Are you alcoholic?

The possible causes are:
1. Alcohol withdrawal or hangover
2. Migraine headaches
3. Sinus head ache
4. Food poisoning
5. Idiopathic intracranial pressure

Unless examination is done, it is difficult to say what it is. Please consult your neuro physician, he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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