Get checked ASAP: This may be a simple tension type headache, but the nausea, if associated with some change or loss in your vision may be a sign of acute angle-closure glaucoma, an emergency condition which would cause you to lose your vision. Any fever or nasal drainage? You may have a sinus infection.
