Headaches: Headaches frequently start out as stress headaches or migraine headaches. Sometimes, they result in rebound headaches from taking daily pain medication. They occur when the pain medication wears off. It sets up a vicious cycle which may require a visit to your doctor to stop them. You may have to take preventive medication to help get off of the pain medication.

Many Answers: It could be many things. You should start with your md first. You may also want to consider seeing a TMJ dentist as well, as many headaches are associated with teeth habits or teeth problems. Many patients clench their teeth, this can produce profound headaches day or night.

Need a diagnosis: Daily headaches can be caused by very many different issues. If the origin of the pain seems to involve your jaws or muscles related to chewing, start by seeing a dentist. If it seems to be unrelated to your jaw, start with your physician. Don't be surprised if both disciplines are called upon to get to the bottom of your situation as multiple things could be going on.

Tension: Stress, dehydration, food allergy, not sleeping well, tension in neck and shoulders, a purse that is too heavy, overuse syndrome of muscles, poor diet, rebound from too much motrin, and others. Chiropractic care can be very helpful as can acupuncture, chinese medicine, a massage and a visit with your doctor to determine source.

If there is insufficient relief from the previous attempts at control, preventive medication can be used to reduce the intensity and frequency of the headaches.
