Hello megha
In case of headache the location of pain is many a times indicator of the underlying disease e.g. frontal headache is associated with sinusitis and occipital headache has more tedency to be related with hypertension. The long standing nature and extent ofseverity you are narrating indicate it to be either migraine or tension headache.It is good that your CT scan is normal. This rules out major pathologies.
Morning walk deepbreathing yoga massage help a bit. In ayurveda there is a procedure called shirodhara which can offer good relief. cap. bravobol, pathyadi kara and tab. cephagraine are to be taken internally.
There is a procedure called nasya in which medicated oils are dropped in nose is useful in such chronic cases.
Nausea is common symptom with aute headache, nothing to worry on that account.

There are two classes of treatments for Migraine : 1) To prevent it: this includes flunarin, which may not give relief to all patients. 2) To treat an acute attack : these are usually the Triptans. "Headset " is an excellent tablet, with which my patients have had good relief. Ask your Doctor about it.
MOST IMPORTANTLY , you need to identify your triggers & avoid them . These could be lack of adequate or timely sleep, delayed meals/ fasting, too much sunlight or viewing of the TV/ Computer screen , especially with fast-changing screens/graphics, pre- menstrual fluid accumulation or hormone changes & STRESS/ANXIETY.

Dear Megha,

This is definitely migraine. Consult a good pain specialist for stronger medication for your problem. Try meditation, yoga etc. also. You may use Flunarizine again if you haven't got complete relief. Avoid hot environments, going out in the sun, too much exertion in heat, and so on. This may help prevent recurrent attacks. Dietary restrictions have not been proved to be helpful, but try and avoid chocolates and nuts and see if that helps you.
