I woke up with a pounding headache on Sunday morning,

Patient

Q: I woke up with a pounding headache on Sunday morning, so I took ibuprophen. This barely dulled the headache. I woke up with it again monday, and had a headache all day. Monday afternoon it got awful. I couldn't function. So I stayed home Tuesday, and my mom gave me excedrin for migranes. This also dulled the headache but did not make it go away. I went to the doctor in tuesday, but he barely looked at me and said it was allergies (I was slightly stopped up on Tuesday) It is now Wednesday evening, my head is clear, and I have had a nonstop headache since Sunday morning accompanied by some achiness in my back and neck. Should I be worried?
