3 doctors agree
In brief: Depends
It depends on clinical features.
Tension headache is not life threatening. Other headache lasting for five days need to be investigated.

In brief: Dr. should evaluate
Headaches are universal, meaning everyone has a headache once in a while.
A person with a severe headache, a weird headache, a recurrent headache, or a prolonged headache should see his primary care doctor. The doctor can check for causes such as sinus infections, artery inflammation, eye glaucoma, viral meningitis, etc... A specialist (neurologist, ophthalmologist, ...) is needed in some cases.
