    Head injuries in the past, headaches after drinking now

    I've gotten three concussions (all three to five years ago) from when I played football in High School. This summer, I went on a roller coaster and suffered a tremendous headache, which I thought was strange.

    Now that I'm in college, every time I drink alcohol I suffer minor headaches shortly after. The strange thing about these headaches is that they last for the whole week following my drinking, and they're best described as almost a squeezing and pulsing sensation. To clarify, I'm not in tremendous pain, but I do find it strange that these headaches last so long following such little drinking.

    Any advice would be really appreciated! I'm not sure if I need to go to a doctor yet, but my friends are encouraging me to ask around on the internet. Thanks again!
