Continuous throbbing headache after air travel, taking pain killers. Worrisome?

I live in Arizona and had a trip to new York in a 4 day period. On my way back, in the plane, I got this strong throbbing headache . As soon as I got to my luggage I took ibuprofen and it calmed the pain. It s been 4 days since the flight and I still have to take pain killers up to 3 times per day for relief. Do I need to worry about it and see a doctor?

Ophthalmologist 's  Response
It seems from the history that you are having headache after air travel .
This can be because of motion sickness related to air travel.
Since it is responding yo oral analgesics and antiinflammatory drugs in the form of ibuprofen there is no need to worry.
The pain of headache will cone down with treatment.

Thank you
