In brief: Headaches

Headaches are common even in totally healthy individuals, but when you are on medications and have thyroid dysfunction as well, youlikely have more reasons to be developing headaches.
With eye/head movement triggering and other medical probs, it is necessary to get an evaluation. Take care.

In brief: Throbbing headache

Throbbing headache (usually associated with light bothering the eyes and upset stomach) is typical of migraine type headache; best treatment would be Imitrex (sumatriptan) (rx only).
Another, much rarer concern that can be associated with obesity is "benign intracranial hypertension" due to excessive production of spinal fluid. Best to consult a physician if these symptoms continue.
