When I have a headache and shake my head it hurts intensely bad on left side near temple, is this normal?

In your case, the left side of your head begins hurting much more when you move your head about by shaking. I don't know if that is common among headache people but it is true that there pain can get worse with movement. Www.healthtap.com/drsaghafi Key Code: PDXFNR ...Read more

Got headache on left side of the head near temples. Pain is like a heartbeat comes and goes every second. Really hurts. Can i miss school. What to do?
