Get an exam: There is no way to help you with this w/out your being there. It may be a minor thing or quite a complicated issue. Be examined and find out. Only then can you begin treatment and make decisions about what to do. I hope it's a small thing and if not, that it's addressed well. Best! ...Read more

TimeToTakeAction: If that doesn't get better in an hour or two and/or if you can't keep down a couple of Tylenol or Motrin and/or it gets much worse, get someone to take you to an Urgent Care or E.R.--they'll be able to give medication to help the headache and nausea and try and figure out what's causing your problem.

If there is a hypotropia when moving the eye nasally, you may have a brown syndrome, where the tendon of the superior oblique "hangs up" at the trochlea. Trying to move the eye anyway may cause discomfort. With optic neuritis eye movement often causes pain, but in any direction. ...Read more

With this info though, could also be an eye problem (potentially serious especially with a red eye) or left-sided sinus issues.
