I am suffering with headache very often, so i consulted one doctor he suggested me to wear spectacles and i did that also, again the same problem, i consulted the doctor he said it might be a synus problem and gave some nostrils drop to use but again the same problem, i am not able to study, i am not able to say how the pain was but it is doing like anything in my head.

Note: Seven months before felt down from the steps and i hitted in the floor severly in the head back side but at that time there is no pain. My suspection is on that incident only.

Can you suggest me what i have to do now.

Hi, and thanks for your medical question on eHealth forum

If you have a history of falling and hitting the back side of head and now have headaches (and probably poor vision as you needed spectacles), then please consult a neurologist immediately.

You could have a subdural hematoma, chronic variant that developed slowly, as a result of small blood vessels leaking or bleeding. The other possibility is that you have injured the cervical vertebrae in some way—either a disc protrusion or a disc alignment problem, that is causing pinched cervical spinal nerves.

Talk to your PCP and try and get an appointment for a neurologist. Meanwhile get a MRI of head and neck. Hope this helps. Take care!
