When should I seek help for my headaches?

Depends. Many people have occassonal headaches that respond to over-the-counter meds and relaxation. However, if the headaches are occurring often or don't respond to those meds, you need an evaluation. Also, for any neurological signs (vision changes, numbness/tingling, confusion, etc) do not wait...See a dr.
Headache. If it's a disabling headache, sudden onset, associated symptoms like vision loss-vertigo-numbness or weakness...When it persists for more than several days at most. When your otc medicines are not working.
