In brief: See your eye doc
With new headaches, you always wanna see your doc.
In this case, you might stop by the eye doc first (od, do or md) and see if you need new glasses specifically for viewing a computer screen. This can cause eye strain and headaches. If that doesn't fix the headaches, then you need to see your regular doc (do or md) to have the headaches evaluated.
