Welcome to ehealthforum,
The headache that he is experiencing could be migraine headache, tension headache, or associated with vascular or nervous system. Do not ignore his symptoms. Get him examined by his doctor at the earliest. He might need to have an EEG scan and CT scan of head done to look for any underlying causes. Once cause is identified, appropriate treatment can be started.
Take care.
