Headaches: Chances are these are tension type headaches but it may be a migraine variant. Important questions are.. Does the pain cause any congestion in the sinuses? Any visual disturbances, or weakness in that side of the face? Any nausea or light sensitivity with this? If u have any of those.. Please consult ur physician
