The Headache was the 83rd overall episode of Sanford and Son. Also the 21st episode of Season Four, it first aired February 21, 1975.
Lamont's headache drives him to the psychologist's couch, where it is suggested the pain in Lamont's head is caused by the pain in the neck he lives with.
Having suffered a splitting headache for two weeks, Lamont goes to see a doctor. When it turns out that the headache is psychosomatic, Lamont is referred to a psychologist (Robert DoQui)-- who determines that the pain is being caused by Lamont's own father Fred. The problem: How can Lamont break the news to Fred that he is literally making him sick? Darrell Zwerling appears in this episode as a pediatrician, and Frances E. Nealy appears as a patient.
