HHi dear.

I had gone through your query.

Episodic headache with throbbing in nature may indicate migraine.

Migraine has young onset / episodic / throbbing in nature/ unilateral / associated with nausea and vomiting.

If it is migraine then acute attack can be relieved by analgesic like paracetamol and diclofenac.

Prevention of such attack by prophylaxis treatment.

Medicines like amitriptiline/flunarizine/propranalol etc can help.

Consult neurologist and get assistance.

Still if you have a query then feel free to ask.

Happy to help you further.

Thank you.
