Terrible headache

Dear Doc

I have this terrible headache which started yesterday afternoon. it''s so bad that i have to think twice if i have to turn my head especially to the left. Even when i''m walking, as i''m taking a step it becomes excruciatingly painful. Life has not been good lately, i''m not sure whether it''s caused by lot of thinking or what? I feel so tired......
