Depends: veins do not pulsate It is probably the temporal artery. It all depends as to how long lasting and how long are the headaches. Is it associated with any other symptoms? If persistent get medical advvice

Sounds like migraine: HOWEVER, you list a diagnosis of Pseudotumor cerebri, which can indeed cause a variety of headaches. Would suggest trying Diamox (acetazolamide) or Osmoglyn to decrease intracranial pressure, which in turn might stop headaches.

Cause of headache: The best way to tackle a headache is to figure out what's causing it in the first place - is it a migraine, from not eating breakfast this am, from skipping a dose of a medicine, from not getting enough sleep? There can be many reasons. For the run of the mill dull headache, i usually like to try some Ibuprofen and/or tylenol (acetaminophen) first and see how it feels after an hour or so.
