Thank you for your question, Does these headaches occur on the front of head ? back of head ? what makes them increased or what makes them decrease ? do you use any medicine ?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Front and behind the eyes, light, smells, heat, vibrations all make it hurt worse, I work in a kitchen so I am assaulted with all at once, a cool dark room helps, only panadol

Thank you for your question, these are typical features of migraine headache, this comes on like episodes and it needs to be kept under check with help of high dose panadol, 2 tablets of 500mg four times daily help to alleviate symptoms within 24 hours in most cases. You have to stop coffee, cola drinks and chocolate also to help keep these episodes under check. Thank you.
