Thanks for the query

Let me tell you that the causes of headache are many and this can be due to sinusitis, migraine, tension headache, cluster headache, brain tumor/infection, problem in the blood vessels and so on. Further, the presence of associated complaints like vomiting, nausea, any proceeding signs before headache and weakness of legs/hands etc will help us clarify the diagnosis.

With the limited information, i feel that you may be having tension headache and/or migraine. Note that these are the diagnoses of exclusion.

I advise you to meet a neurologist and get examined to secure the diagnosis so that treatment becomes easy.

Mostly you will benefit with rest, relaxation, regular food and sleep habit along with a short course of medicines like Amitriptiline, Topiramate, valproate, propranolol etc. Long term use of analgesics are not good for health.

Please don't worry much

Your neurologist will help

Best wishes
