week-long headache?

I have had a headache for about a week now.  I am from high elevation (8000 ft), and moved to Colorado (6000 ft).  i felt not-well for about a week, took a two week vacation to sea level, and upon returning to CO, i have had a headache.  it worsens to about medium level pain or reduces to tension/threat on and off, usually reducing while i sleep, or when i am fully hydrated and eat a lot and don't go outside or move or speak much.  I also incidentally have wisdom teeth coming in--straight from what i can tell--but that's just from what they feel/look like so far.  I have no health insurance or dental insurance and live at a very low income.  I also don't own proper furniture, so i sit on a bed all day (posture?)  Two other people i live with report having a tight jaw (which seems to be where the headache is stemming from and spreading to head/eyes/nose/tight in neck).  So i'm not sure if it's fall allergies, posture, elevation, wisdom teeth, or a combination of these.  Ibuprofen only help when it's at tension level, and not when it's a true headache.  Heat helps, so does massage, so at least part seems tension-related, or to have become tension-related.  Does anyone have any ideas how i could isolate the source, fix the problem, etc.?  While I am headache-prone to begin with, i have never had a headache go on for a week before.  Any help is appreciated.

Thank you,
Lorelei

You could be having sinusitis.

steam inhalation , antihistaminics , decongestants , pain killers and antibiotics can help.

Please meet up your doctor to rule out .
