Throbbing : Throbbing on the side of the head can be caused by irritation of an artery, such as temporal arteritis, a tension headache, or cluster headache. If a patient has a headache for two months that has been persistent, seeing a physician would be reasonable in order to obtain a thorough evaluation.
