Ok: try switching to Tylenol, (acetaminophen) or let it ride with no treatment for few days. If pain a result of the Nonsteroidal then I suspect discontinuation should lead to improvement within 4 to 48 hours

Some considerations: If you are having migraines, there may be a medication rebound effect and then "chronic daily headaches". However, is there a problem inside the cranium? Do you have a history of head injury? Do you have a reaction to female hormone pills? Is your thyroid ok? Talk to your doctor, maybe a simple solution.

Have it evaluated: You should check for the usual causes such as sinuses and tension headaches. It is unusual to have the headaches in the morning with regularity. It is particularly concerning if it wakes you in the morning from sleep. If indeed this is the case, you should have it evaluated because one of the typical characteristics of brain tumors is the morning headache.
