Hi!
I am sorry to hear about your medical problems.  It is difficult to diagnose the cause of headaches on net, but it is unlikely to be viral if it is persisting for 4 months. Sinusitis, refractive errors of the eye, migraine, cluster headaches, brain tumors and aneurysms, high blood pressure, stress, tension headaches, temporal arteritis, pinched cervical spinal nerve, TMJ,  poor or disturbed sleep etc are several causes of headaches. Dental pain and ear ache due to infection or impacted wax can cause similar symptoms. Needless to say, a persisting headache should be investigated.  Please consult your family doctor to start with. You may need to consult a headache and migraine specialist too. Hope this helps. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
