tension headache
daily headache
stabbing headache

Temporal arteritis...and inflammation for the larger arteries...this is less likely because you do not have other symptoms

less likely possibilities such as brain lesion, chronic sinus infection

This needs an examination to make sure you have no neurological findings.
A blood test called a sed rate could rule out hidden infection, arteritis, or hidden tumor.

The other possibilities can all be treated.
Good luck
