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.

Probably migraine: Migraines are the most common cause of frequent headaches, and they are often associated with light sensitivity. Otc pain meds can contribute to rebound/medication overuse headache, which causes the headaches to actually worsen in the long run. You should see a neurologist who can get you on a good preventative agent as well as a good acute agent (i.e. Triptan i.e. Imitrex) for the pain.

Depends: If it is a new onset headache you should have an MRI to rule out any brain cause for the headache. If it is a chronic headache, meaning you have headaches for a long time, there might be a chance that you have associated myofascial pain and/or other factors related to headache etiologym like sleep bruxism(teeth grinding).

Hard to guess: Most people get a headache at some time, such as from colds, infections, lack of sleep, too much driving, long hours on the computer, stress at work, etc... Some OTC options (not for chronic use) include Tylenol, Motrin or Advil, Aleve, Excedrin and their generic brands. A bad or increasing headache, recurrent or persistent headache (as in this case), or with worrisome symptoms needs evaluation.
