Too many possible: Many possible explanations. 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 meds for occasional use include Tylenol, Motrin or Advil, Aleve, Excedrin Migraine, and their generic brands. Follow-up evaluations with one's doctors in-person are the best way to figure this out.
