Headaches: If you have severe headaches frequently, you should see your primary care physician and/or a neurologist for evaluation. That doesn't preclude feeling concerned, but it could go a long way towards resolving your worries and providing whatever help you might need. Best wishes.

See a doctor: not necessarily, but you should get checked out by a doctor. there are other brain or nerve diseases that can have similar symptoms.
