I have a really bad headache (8/10) on the very top of my head, it's not on either side and it's been there for 2 1/2 hours. What could be the cause?

In brief: Tension headache

If you are not allergic to Aspirin, take and NSAID.
If that does not help and you have ANY other symptoms for longer, consult your PCP or go the the ED.
