In brief: There

There could be multiple causes to the type of headaches described here.
They are dependent of patient's age, sex, and chronicity. For instance, in younger folks these can be migraines; and for older people they may represent a vascular or inflammatory condition. Therefore, the first order of business should engage a full medical and neurological evaluation by a doctor. In addition to a physical examination, the physician will have to determine if lab tests and/or imaging studies like MRI are necessary. Delay in seeking medical attention in your case may carry catastrophic consequences.
