Your symptoms resemble those of migraine. Symptoms of a migraine may include sensitivity to light and sound, nausea, auras (loss of vision in one eye or tunnel vision), difficulty of speech and intense pain predominating on one side of the head
You can also try for sumatriptan in combination with NSAID like naproxen.
