I woke up with a horrible headache on the left hand side of my face and applying pressure on the position between the lobe and tragus worsens it?

Although fairly: uncommon in women (v. men) you may have what's called a CLUSTER headache...a form of migraine...In any case you should have this evaluated ...speak with your GP (Primary Care) Provider ....This kind ...or for that matter any MIGRAINE headache needs evaluation and there is specific treatment! Hope thi s is helpful! Dr Z
