It's not uncommon to suffer from a headache but you shouldn't just shrug them off, especially if you suffer two or more headaches weekly. Dr. Michael Munger, the president of the American Academy of Family Physicians, says any more than two headaches for three weeks is a cause for concern. However, it doesn't mean sufferers should panic as it isn't necessarily an emergency but you should disclose the headaches to your doctor and make an appointment for a checkup.  Numerous headaches can be a sign of brain tumors and aneurysms, in rare cases. And remember popping an over-the-counter pill for the pain too long.  Although they appear to be safe long-term or frequent use can be more damaging than the headache itself.
