That looks like you are having migraine. Or maybe you are allergic to some kind of food. Normally if I over eat chocolates I will experience this kind of terrible headache. Or when I am in a crowd I will end up getting severe headache. This is easy cure, you withdraw to the bedroom and have a good rest. Make sure the room is totally dark. You will soon come out of your headache.

I know Germany is famous for its hotdog and you get the taste of the real german hotdog ha..ha...ha. I have two cousins staying in Germany married to Germans, no wonder they never think of home now. But German hotdogs are not 'hot and spicy' like the Malaysian hotdogs!!

Yes, I deal with that alot. It could be because of a migraine. Or because your neck is out. As in my case. I have a previous neck injury from being in a wrcek caused by someone else. My neck will pop out of place causing one side of my head and neck to hurt.

I have actually experienced such headaches for years. I once consulted a doctor years ago about it and have undergone some testing and it came that it's just migraine. The doctor told me that I have to observe and take note of my activities that triggers such headaches. The left side of my head really really aches and all I want would be just to lie down and sleep it off. I did noticed that when I get exposed to harsh lights and be in the direct sunlight even for a few minutes trigger such headache. I also noticed that when I am under work stress and have less than 6 hours sleep, my headaches would become severe to the point wherein the left side of my head becomes numb.

it seems stress causes these type of headaches.always keep your body hydrated and when you get such type of headaches,go to a dark room and take some rest along with a painkiller.

it happens to me sometimes but not on left or either on the right. it hurts in the back portion of my brain and sometimes in the middle of it... but i think it just because of some kind of a bump effect....

Yes last week. On my right hand side just behind and above my ear. I think that it was a sinus headache. I know that it was there when I went to bed and still there when I woke. It's quite scary as you start to think horrible thoughts about it. I hope that your goes soon.

I am the headache queen, I have had every kind of headache known to man, so I think that I can help you lol. When I have headaches that are on one side of my head only, it usually is a sinus headache. This is when mucus backs up in the sinus cavities, and causes sinus pressure. The best way to get rid of it is to take some kind of sinus medicine, that will clear up the mucus, and hopefully get rid of the pressure. I hope this helps you.

you can usually tell a sinus headache because it is sore to touch just below your eyes and above your eyes... you can also relieve the pressure by gently massaging the area above your eyes starting from the nose outwards .. :) having said that when i have problems with headaches on certain side it is due to eye strain and tension..

it could be.. if it keeps bugging you you might wanna see a doc but i know i get headaches and migraines daily and one doc said migraines do hurt on one side and other docs said both and i have read that it can be on one side so that is prob it.. the best thing for headaches is excedrine extra strength.. tylenol and ibuprophren doesnt help me at all

Yes I have had this happen and I'm not quite sure why it does only one sode. I will just take some advil and lay down til it subsides. That is one I will have to check out and or ask my doctor about. I do hope yours get better and they don't happen as often.
