In brief: Headaches

Headaches that are increasing or occur daily are worrisome.
If your headaches are worse in the morning or associated with vomiting or have other associations( such as visual changes or neurologic changes) should be seen immediately. A neurologist should be consulted if you are requiring more than occasional tylenol (acetaminophen) or ibuprofen.
