Can call Dr on video: 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. Some people temporarily try OTC Tylenol, Motrin, Aleve, or their generic brands. A bad or increasing headache, recurrent headache, weird headache, or one that won't go away needs to be examined by a doctor. If not severe, can use video first.
