Agree see Dr: Persistent headaches that don’t get much better with the medications you listed should definitely be evaluated by a Dr: thorough history & physical exam (with good neurological exam) is critical, & Dr can decide about trying other meds or possibly CT scan or MRI to be sure nothing serious. Stress, sinus pressure, eye problems, & other things can cause headaches. Dr can tell which one.
