Welcome to Ask The Doctor. We are here to help you.
Such pattern of headache is seen in Migraine.
Migraine headaches are usually unilateral, associated with throbbing, vomiting sensations, photophobia and phonophobia.
They aggravate on stress. They also aggravate on watching TV, Loud noises, sleep deprivation.
A clinical examination specially Neurological Examination, fundus examination are must to rule out any other Neurological problem which might also require Neuroimaging.
I would also advise you to get your eyes tested.
You should see your doctor.
He will classify the headache and if it is Migrainous, treatment would be with the drugs like Flunarizine, Propanolol, Amitriptyline. The drugs are decided on the basis of severity, frequency and duration of headache.
I hope it helps.
