Chronic headache: What kind of doctor should I see?

I have had a constant headache for about the last year. Mild to moderate pain, more often mild than moderate. When mild, the pain is only a dull sort of rigid, throbbing, when moderate, the pain is more stabbing. The headache interferes with my sleeping. Small noises can easily wake up me, like the sound of rain falling on my roof or a door closing in the apartment over. I frequently wake up feeling tired and have difficulty concentrating on tasks during the day. "Attacks" of moderate pain seem to be triggered by stressful events, astringent foods, and sometimes alcohol. Pain mostly focused around the eyes, sinuses, and the sides and back of the skull. What type of doctor should I go see about this?
