A severe sudden onset of new headaches is not good. It is considered as a red flag for headache. It may be caused by a brain tumor, brain hemorrhage, subarachanoid hemorrhage or others. It warrants a visit to a neurologist and a head CT scan.
Have you had a similar attack before? Is it a bout or a persistent pain? Any trauma? Generally, if a new headache occurs, head CT and MRI should be done to determine whether there are brain lesions.
