Doctor can examine: 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... Over-the-counter treatments include Tylenol (acetaminophen), Motrin, Alleve, Excedrin Migraine, etc... A bad or increasing headache, recurrent headache, weird headache, one that "wakes you from sleep," or other worrisome symptoms should be checked.
