Among others: Headache is one of many possible symptoms: vague general ones include fever, chills, poor appetite, weight loss, aches & pains, joint pain, night sweats, weakness & malaise. Cardiac symptoms may include shortness of breath, cough or chest pain. If all you have is headache, recurrent endocarditis would be unlikely, but you are right to consider the possibility. I would check with your doctor.
