when it's like in the back part of your head, a throbbing, severe type of pain that makes your eyes burn, and causes your vision to go a bit blurry, and when leaning over makes the pain a million times worse? otc painkillers don't seem to help, codeine based do help a little but the headache tend goes away after 1-2h in any event, only to return after like a 2h break? the cycle then repeats itself many times, and lasts several days. are these like tension headaches? migraines?

They sound like Migraines to me. Or cluster headaches maybe, but I don’t know much about them.
But I am not a doctor. I’d definitely speak to your GP.

It sounds more like a cluster headache (or possibly sinus headache) as tension headache is usually felt across the forehead (like a tight band). Tension also doesn't get worse when by physical activity.

Not really a pattern I understand. tension or cluster is possible. I dont think a migraine would just go away and then come back, you tend to know you have it. You must be stressed at the moment, so tension wouldnt be a surprise.
Exercise, meditation, uninterrupted quality sleep. Try a bit of aspirin as well or see if the diaz helps, that should relax you right down.

hmm, right. according to google: cluster headaches = one sided pain. but in my case physical activity makes them worse so idk, my body is so confusing lol

Anemia can cause random headaches. You should check your eyesight too.

I'd wager it's a migraine because it's blurring your vision and affecting your eyes. You can get over the counter medication for it such as migraleve from pharmacies which relieve some of the symptoms of it. I'd suggest trying that instead of painkillers etc as that might target your headaches better.
