See a doc ASAP: New headaches that don't respond to over the counter pain medications need to be investigated further ASAP. Please see your GP and/or a neurologist for an in-person history and physical and any appropriate blood tests and imaging studies that they recommend. Please do not delay! The cause may be minor but why take the chance that something serious is going on, which may only get worse!
