As much as we'd like to help you, what you need is for someone to diagnose your headache and recommend treatment, and that can't be done via the Internet. The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.
Unexplained head pain should always be checked out. Please see your doctor.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
