Doctor should check: Most 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 options include Tylenol, Motrin or Advil, Aleve, Excedrin and their generic brands. "Bad" pain or increasing headache, recurrent headache, weird headache, or with other worrisome symptoms should be evaluated now.
