In brief: See a doctor soon
It is very possible that your severe headaches on standing (after a skull fracture) are due to a brain fluid leak through your fracture.
Such leaks can be dangerous and can lead to meningitis if not properly followed and/or dealt with. Typically, early fractures with brain fluid leaks are dealt with conservatively (meds) but if you have had the fractures for a while, you may need more done.See md.
