In brief: Depends on the type
There are many types of headaches - tension, migraine, cluster, rebound, etc.
The best way to get to the answer quickly is to keep a careful log. List when, description (location, stabbing, dull, etc), any foods or products you may have been exposed to (including caffeine), medicines you take, stress levels, what helps/worsens, etc. This information will help your doctor diagnose and treat you!
