Hello,Thanks for providing more information.
As you have stuffy nose so possibly it can also be a contributing factor in headache and you should try OTC Claritin or if you have Zyrtec then take it and Tyelnol for 3-5 days.
Avoid Advil as you have NAFLD.
Also do steam inhalation and nasal saline spray.
Use a humidifier in your room.
Stress and anxiety can be aggravating factors so you should take proper rest and do deep breathing exercises.
If your symptoms'll persist more than a week then you need to be seen by your doctor for a clinical examination.
As taking pain killers more than a week can cause adverse effects like gastrointestinal upset and even long term use can result in rebound headache.
I hope this helps.

If you have any further query then feel free to ask.
Bonus and positive feedback are highly appreciated.
Is this a reason for concern? It has only happened three times. If I don't get another one for some time is that considered normal?
Also, I thought that ibuprofen was better than tylenol for the liver, but I guess I am wrong?
I also have TMJ and seasonal allergies (spring). Forgot to mention that.
Thanks for the follow-up.
Actually both Tylenol and Advil are not safe when a person has NAFLD.
So it is advised to take pain killer only when you have severe pain.
As you have stuffy nose,allergy issues so possibly these are contributing factor.And if you don't get another one next 2 weeks then you shouldn't worry.
If your symptoms'll persist more than a week or get recurrent episodes like 2 attacks in a week then you need to be seen by your doctor for further evaluation and management.
Last question, if something were serious going on like stroke, blood clot, anyeurism, etc, there would be other things going on ?
