Hi, all.  I don't come to this forum often.  I'm one of those people who never knows when to go to the doctor, and I'm hoping you can help.  

 

I have been having a persistent headache for over a week.  It's not super bad, just a regular tension headache that lasts all day.  But I don't usually get headaches ever.  I've been monitoring my caffeine (usually a cup of coffee in the morning and one in the afternoon), trying to wear my glasses consistently (I usually forget), getting more sleep, drinking water, and I stopped wearing headbands.  But still it persists.  I've taken advil and tylenol at different times and they didn't help. 

 

My husband thinks its just stress because we have a lot going on.  But I don't feel that stressed out.  Anyway, this is just highly unusual for me and I'm wondering if I should go to the doctor?    Or if you can think of something else that may  be causing it that I'm forgetting?  Besides the headache, I don't have any other symptoms or complaints.
