I am getting severe headache frequently. Almost twice weekly. I observed that some times it happens when I take my lunch late or when I think too much. I normally don't take medication since I believe they may have side effects. Is it normal to have headache? Is it OK if I tolerate it without medication? My aunt died recently with brain tumour. One of her symptoms is headache. So, do I also need to suspect and go for any Scan? If yes, which one is better, CT or MRI?
