Headache that lasted for a month and mor

Dear Doc,
I would like to know if some one cacn suffer from head ache for this long and why.
In 2005 I can remember having tension etc head ache that lasted for 3 months but without fever.
The only thing I remember was that prior to that I had gone through serious depression because of family issues and did not sleep for nights on end. No medication could help until it disappeared on its own.
