Hi,

First of all, you should go to hospital to do an CT Brain to exclude a focal brain lesion or hemorrhage. If the CT were normal, you should do some investigations such as: CBC and Cerebrospinal fluid analysis to exclude infections. The pain killer cannot treat the cause of the headache.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Mustafa, Neurologist
