In brief: Tension Headache

See the image to your left.
There are 3 main types of primary headaches. Tension headaches are bilateral non-pulsating. Migraines are unilateral and pulsating and associated with aura. Cluster headaches are associated with physical symptoms around the eye

In brief: Migraine

This sounds like a migraine.
Not all migraines have an aura. If it becomes persistent or lasts more than a few hours, call your doctor.
