In brief: Diagnose and treat

The mainstay of headache treatment is nsaids like advil and analgesics like tylenol (acetaminophen).
However, some headache types such as migraines and cluster headaches respond to specific treatments in addition to these. Therefore, you need to be evaluated by your doc to determine what sort of headache this is to ensure that it is being treated properly and effectively.
