The symptoms you report are insufficient for any definitive diagnose to be given.
Headache is only a symptom which might be a result of one of the following conditions:
1. Hypertension
2. Eye disorders
3. Migraine
4. Pain spreading from toothache
5. Cervical spondylosis
6. Brain tumor
Which one of these causes might be responsible for the headache can be determined only with physical exam at your family doctor. If he is not able to solve the problem and need additional tests, then he might still find out which specialist might have biggest chances to solve the headache.
