Exam needed: After head injuries, post traumatic headaches are common but don't usually last this long. Your frequent head discomfort warrants an evaluation by a neurologist. If the old injury site is tender, look for a retained suture. Otherwise the neurologist will determine the cause of your headaches. Head ct scan or mri may be recommended as part of the evaluation.
