Hi, thanks for getting in touch. How long has this been the case, could you tell me a little more? Do you have any medical problems?

I see. It may well be related. If you're otherwise ok in yourself you should still be ok to travel but in the meantime I'd make sure you're getting in plenty of fluids and take regular paracetamol as well as ibuprofen. Try to get some rest and it should pass. It sounds like you're having a classic tension headache and the above plus some time will help for sure.
