In brief: See below
Could be a migraine type of headache and the first line medicines to use (as long as you do not have bleeding disorders) would be ibuprofen.
Rest, sleep and isolation into a dark, quiet room will help as well. However, if this is the worst headache that you've ever had and have no other symptoms beside the headache, seek medical attention asap.

In brief: Migraine
Those are typical symptoms of a migraine.
Migraines will go away on their own, a pain reliever like Aspirin or Acetaminophen may help. You may want to see your doctor if you keep getting these headaches. There are prescriptions that can help prevent future migraines or relieve symptoms faster. If this lasts longer than a day, see your doctor for other possible causes.

In brief: Migraine
Sounds like a migraine headache.
See your doctor there are medications that can stop and others that work to prevent migraines. With history of head trauma consider osteopathic cranial treatment. Cranialacademy.Com has a web site doctor finder function.
