Can call the doctor: Most people get a headache at some time, such as from colds, infections, lack of sleep, too much driving, long hours on a computer, stress at work, etc... Some people temporarily use some Tylenol, Motrin or Advil, Aleve, or Excedrin. A bad or increasing headache, recurrent or persistent headache (as in this case), weird headache, or with other worrisome symptoms should be checked by one's doctor.
