I have repeated head ache. Most of the time my head ache is on one side of head. I feel nausea and stiff neck during head ache. if I don't take medicine, head ache does not cure even after sleep or rest. When pain increase, I start vomiting. generally I take combiflame or crocin advance-half tablet for head ache. My head ache starts generally when I have stressful day , sleep less than 7 hous and take tension. Please give your suggestion. Also advice me if I need to see a neurologist
