Possible migraine: These symptoms are typical of migraine headache. During masturbation, blood pressure and blood flow increase and may trigger your headaches. Keep a diary of headaches to see when they occur and if you can identify any other triggers? If you are female, watch for masturbation and headache pattern changes during your 28-day cycle. Some women have cycle related migraines. Discuss with a doctor. ...Read more

I had a root canal yesterday and woke to a severe unilateral headache on the opposing side to the tooth, severe tenderness of the tooth site. Normal?

I had a root canal yesterday and woke to a severe unilateral headache on the opposing side to the tooth, severe tenderness of the tooth site.  Normal?

Not typical: No this is not typical. The reason why you are having pain on the opposite side from the root canal may be because your mouth was open for a long time during the dental procedure. Now the muscles and jaw are stressed out. If this is the cause ibuprophen, ice and soft diet will help. Call the dentist who did the root canal and find out exqctlynwhatnis going on. ...Read more

Unilateral headache for 2 wks. Left temple area. Passed blood/cognitive/reflex tests. No MRI. Dr says benign tension HA. Pain starts soon as I sleep.

Other disorders are possibilities as well. If you'd like to discuss diagnosis, treatment and prevention further, I'm available for consults. ...Read more

Had 2 cat scans of my brain when I was 15 I am now 18 and I've been having one sided headaches and pressure and change on personality ct cause 
cancer?

Hard to know: New or changing headache should be evaluated. Personality change can occur with some infectious causes, but the way the question is posed I suspect that by personality change you mean you become irritable (maybe I am reading into it too much). Irritability is expected for any headache. Otherwise, personality change or confusion means you should head to the ER. Migraine is more likely than cancer. ...Read more

I've been having one sided headaches. the other day it was the right side of my head, today left. more like migraines. should I worry?

No: headaches are for the most part a benign phenomenom. the brain has no pain receptors, so things like brain tumors cause deficits like weakness, numbness, poor speech, altered vision, etc but not pain. migraines or other headache phenomenom can be socially disabling, but never life threatening. ...Read more
