Hi there,
Thank you for posting your question. I will do my best to help you.
I have tried to understand your query to my best

The good thing all reports are normal (CT scan ,MRI ) as mentioned above.

It seems to be a Chronic daily Headache ( as been having since many years).
Common causes ( As all reports mentioned as Normal ) of Chronic Headache could be:
1)Chronic Migraine
2)Tension Headache
3)Hemicrania continua headaches - are daily and continuous with no pain-free periods

Investigation : Ct scan,MRI and EEG - are advised to diagnose brain tumors, injury or inflammation and if theses are done & normal in your case & found to be normal , then it is good that underlying diseases are ruled out.

When no underlying diseases or conditions are present, treatment focuses on preventing the pain before it starts.
If you're taking pain relievers more than three days a week, the first step in treatment may be to stop using these drugs( as painkillers have adverse reaction like causing liver failure & consult a Neurologist for further prescription.
Preventive Therapy is best way to treat Chronic Headaches which are through

Meanwhile try Alternative therapy like Meditation,Acupuncture ,massage

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help.
