Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. It looks like tension headache. Anxiolytics and low dose tricyclic antidepressants with some tylenol will help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
