Not that I'm a hypochondriac, but at my age and knowledge of prior health problems I've had, I would now contemplate the worst case scenario and get my butt to a doctor if I had a persistent headache. For me, I believe such could now be the precursor of yet another aneurism. More rationale for me stating this is I haven't had a headache in so long that it's very difficult to remember exactly ... but I will say it was before my present marriage, as is more than 2/3rds of my life post puberty. To be blunt, I've seen a number of death certificates where the the cause was an erupted aneurism. Been that close three times! Now you know I've a regimen of daily blood thinners, the least of which is OTC 81 mg aspirin. Otherwise, I don't know of any who exceed my love for playing the brass instruments, albeit I may not presently have the capabilty to play them as well as I would like or have prior.
