Not brain: If you had a normal brain MRI and the pain remained essentially the same, positional, when you lay down, I would suggest that you see your doc for another physical exam. Depending on the characters of your headache, the problem might be somewhere else, neck or cervical spine, sinuses, etc.

You should consult a: Neurologist , with your MRI in hand, and get evaluated for this recurrent headache.
