TMJ : Headache originating at the side of the head are usually associated with the temporalis muscle and tmj. This muscle just so happens to attach to the jaw and can become hyperactive when your bite or jaw is not in a proper position. Tmj is a syndrome and presents with many symptoms that appear unrelated. I suggest you see a dentist specially trained in treating TMJ headaches make life miserabe.
