Migraine: A migraine is a common type of headache that may occur with symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, dizziness, changes in vision, numbness/ tingling or sensitivity to light. In many people, a throbbing pain is felt only on one side of the head. Some people who get migraines have warning symptoms, called an aura, before the actual headache begins.

One sided, temple and eye pain suggests cluster headache, a form of migraine that is especially uncomfortable and frightening. it can be treated.
