Thank you for posting your query.

Your constant headaches require evaluation. The most common causes of headaches include migraine and tension headache. These can be diagnosed on the basis of clinical history.

However, I would advise to do a brain scan such as MRI brain to exclude any structural brain lesion such as infections, blood clots, tumors, etc.

In any case, you should consult a neurologist for diagnosis and treatment.

I hope it helps.

Best wishes,
