In brief: Get to ER

New, severe headaches are to be taken seriously.
If you generally don't have bad headaches and this is one of the worst, you need to get to an er if possible or at least an immediate neurologic workup. New severe headaches may mean the expansion of an aneurym (outpouching) of a bloood vessel in the brain and could be getting ready to burst anytime.

In brief: See a doctor

A headache that lasts over a week should be investigated by a doctor. There are many potential causes and without seeing you a doctor would be guessing as to what the cause might be.
