Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.
Take Ibuprofen 400 mg thrice a day, sit in a quiet room with very little light. Drink a lot of water and avoid coffee, chocolates and tea.
You should also tie a band around your head firmly.
If the Ibuprofen does not alleviate the pain in half an hour then you will need prescription medication Sumatriptan which can be made available at your Urgent Care or the ER.
Hope this helps.
Please do leave a positive rating for the service.
Best wishes.
