In brief: A pain in the head

Various relaxation strategies may help including diaphragmatic breathing, muscle relaxation, or meditation.
Acetominophen or Aspirin work well. If there is a migraine component, abortive agents more typically used for migraines may help as well. Eliminating the stress or dealing with it effectively would be beneficial, for example, being assertive with workmate's ideas whom you disagree with.
