Postconcussion: Head injuries are often a cause of daily headache. It depends on the length of time since the injury as to which treatments would be most appropriate. New head injuries should be assessed with a ct scan to rule out bleeding.

PTHA's: Not unique for head trauma to cause a subsequent headache, and your daily pattern must be very debilitating. First, have a doc examine you and decide if imaging may be necessary to exclude bleeding (subdural hematoma). Once reassured, might go onto preventative med in migraine category to break up this daily pattern. Would avoid narcotics as this could get worse, if use pain meds.
