Wisdom teeth: What you described may be due to the eruption of wisdom teeth. It would be appropriate to consult a doctor or a dentist. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Sore: There is no way to know what it is without being evaluated. Pilar cysts are very common on the scalp, are harmless, but generally do not hurt alhough can be sensitive. I recommend that you have a board-certified Dermatologist evaluate the spot.

5 days had dull ache on and off on left side of head. Not painful. I just saw a dr 7 days ago for checkup, im in great health 29 male. What do u think?

Neck spasm, stress: Temples are a referral area for tension and stiffness in the neck. If you are working for long periods at a computer or leaning over projects, this can cause tightness of the cervical paraspinal muscles that can radiate to either or both temples, even leading to tenderness of the temples. If headache occurs at day's end, likely related to day's stress, if happens in am, may relate to poor sleep.

Dx w/lupus almost 2 years ago. I have a painful sensation on left side of head that get chills on same spot. Any ideas?

Peripheral neuritis: Tori, this may or may not relate to the lupus. Lots of people have little sensitive places on the skin that can at times be painful and at times can tingle or feel like it's getting goosebumps or even go numb. Of course if the pain is very severe or there are other symptoms like visual problems or slurred speech or nausea you should discuss with your doctor. You can try rubbing the spot.

Causes of headache on left side of head above the ear and it hurts to touch my head in that area. No trauma, neck pain, or shoulder pain...

See dentist: You may have a jaw problem from grinding or clenching your teeth especially when sleeping. Suggest you get your jaws checked. If nothing there, then perhaps a MRI may be in order if the problem has been present for more than a few weeks or is getting worse.

This area: You are "describing" sounds like it may be your temporal ARTERY and inflammation of that artery may be connected with some important medical conditions! JUST BECAUSE OF THE LOCATION, I suggest a HANDS ON examination by your PCP (Primary Care Provider) Hope this is helpful
