In brief: Migraine
Sounds like a migraine, but should have checked out given the associated symptoms.
Migraines are typically treated with drugs like imitrex, zomig, (zolmitriptan) beta blockers, topamax; however, i try to find the underlying cause of migraines, such as food sensitivity, hormonal imbalance, or anatomical issue such as sinus or neck problem. If premenstrual, u likley need progesterone. Or get off birth control.
