Neurologist 's  Response
The cause of Headache can range from mild conditions like migraine to serious one's like brain tumors. Most of the headaches are due to mild causes however serious causes need to be ruled out through complete evaluation by a neurologist. Eye check up by an Ophthalmologist should be considered if there is any difficulty in reading or in distant vision. Recurrent nose and throat infections also can cause headache.
