Headache medically, divided into 2 types, namely:

To find out the cause of your headache complaints, it is advisable to see a doctor. You may be asked to do some tests such as blood tests or photo examinations on the head (CT-Scan or MRI) to help determine the cause of the complaint. Appropriate treatment, will be adjusted to the cause of the onset of complaints.
While at home, the following can be done to help reduce pain:
