In brief: Migraine
One sided headaches could be migraines, tension type headaches and what's missed often, but probably one of the most frequent causes of headache is TMJ dysfunction.
Simple analgesics like excedrin may work in case of all of those headaches. Heat may help as well. If you have visual changes, jaw claudication (freezing), muscle aches, this may be sign of a more serious problem requiring attention.
