See your doctor : Headache is not a diagnosis but a nonspecific symptom of a lot of conditions, some organic others functional. Yo7 need a proper work up by your doctor to investigate the underlying cause of your headache and treat accordingly

Headache: Do you have a history of migraines? These headaches are not stereotypical and can vary in location and intensity. Would heed advice to get your doctor involved. Numerous new medications are available to both treat acute headaches and prevent future ones.
