Several: Eye pain from glaucoma and other conditions can refer upwards to cause a headache, and headaches like cluster headaches can have referred pain into the eyes. Best to have an eye exam for eye pain to rule out ocular disease.

Migraine?: The headache could be from many causes. Without more information, it is hard to establish a diagnosis. You could have everything from a migraine to a tension headache, to less commonly a cluster headache, infection or even tumor. You need to see your primary care provider and discuss your symptoms.

More details.: Depends on your trauma and medical history, the answer may be different. If this is the first time you experience this HA, need to see doctor ASAP. If this has been occurring since teen's, then migraine is likely. Glaucoma can cause similar headache as well. You do need to see your doctor regardless.

Cluster HA's: Could well be cluster headaches which focalize over one eye and awaken from sleep. These are considered very nasty, and the pattern is best broken up by taking a preventative medication such as Divalproex Sodium or topirimate. See your doctor and start a therapy.
