You could be suffering from an acute attack of migraine. For the pain you can take tab paracetamol 500 mg twice a day or SOS. To prevent further attacks of migraine you need to take a course of tab Flunarazine 10 mg once a day for one month.

You can get a refraction done later to rule out any refractive error ( though less common to occur after 35 years).
