In brief: See the doctor....
Headaches are sometimes very, very annoying.
..Especially when the "cure-all" one is used to take to alleviate the problem stops working. Unfortunately a 'change' in the type of the headache; or its frequency should be evaluated by your physician!

In brief: How bad is it?
If it's "the worst headache of your life", you should go to the er. If it's less severe and you've had similar headaches before, try 600 mg of Ibuprofen with food in a darkened room lying down for an hour.
