Headaches: Most causes of headaches are benign. That is - the worst thing about them is that they hurt. Headaches that subside are almost always benign. At your age, a headache on one side that lasts a few days is probably a migraine. The injury you had more than one year ago is not likely to be a factor to this headache symptom. Hope that helps!
