In brief: Triptan

You need to take a triptan like imitrex, not demerol (meperidine hydrochloride).

In brief: Other issues

Might be referred pain from muscles in neck and shoulder. Could be intracranial as well.
Sources of help: neurologist, neuromuscularly oriented massage therapist, if no better than get a ct or MRI to rule out bad alternatives.
