May be a variant of.: Trigeminal autonomic cephalgia by way of exercise or exertion. Because it's on the left it could also be a form of paroxysmal hemicrania which is of shorter duration and again induced by heavy exertional activity. If you'd like a private consult with a headache specialist look up www.healthtap.com/dr-drsaghafi and use Key Code: PDXFNR if prompted in order to ask for or set up an appointment.
