Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
If it is a pain which is occurring only for the first time then it needs to be investigated. You need to do a CT scan of the brain to know if there are any significant reasons for the such headaches. If they are migraine then sumatriptan can be used for acute episodes and for prophylaxis Divalproex sodium and propranolol are good options.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.
