Thank you for posting your query at
I have noted your symptoms and it is likely to be a severe migraine attack, which can last up to 72 hours, and even upto one week in some cases.
As of now, you can take rizatriptan or sumatriptan tablets for relief of headache.
If pain persists despite this, you should get a brain scan done to exclude any other cause of headache, such as bleeding or clotting in the brain.
I hope it helps.
