You : You could be dealing with a migraine, tension headache, or even a sinus infection. Since the episodes are getting worse and you feel fatigued, you definitely need a medical evaluation. Please see your primary care doctor or visit your local urgent care center for evaluation, work up, and treatment. Good luck.
