In brief: See pcp or neuro
There are several causes for chronic headaches, including muscular pain, neck pain, stress, migraines and many other possibilities.
The best way to proceed from here would be to schedule an appointment with your pcp who can ask lots of questions and help guide you through the possible causes and most appropriate diagnostic tests and determine the best referral person if appropriate.
