One sided headache aggravated by light and sound can be Migraine. 1.Take simple analgesic like paracetamol 650 mg for relief 2. If headache attacks are very frequent ypu would need preventive medications to stop the attacks. Follow these lifestyle changes to avoid migraine. 1. Maintain regular sleep wake cycle, even on holiday's. 2. Don't skip meals. Take regular healthy diet with adequate fluids 3. Do not consume excess caffeine / carbohydrates / alcohol or smoke. 4. Exercise daily ( aerobics and cardiovascular) 5. Identify your headache trigger and try to avoid it. For further queries please consult.
