1 doctor agrees

In brief: Dehydration

Is the most common cause.
Other causes can be migraine, severe tension headache, stress, medication hangover, fever, illness, flu. I am aggressive with headaches and one that has lasted for two days and diminishes you ability to function needs to be evaluated. It is unlikely that a stroke is the problem but it is in the differential. Take care of yourself. Be seen!
