Not sure it is a migraine, but it is definitely a headache, so here I go. So about a week and a half ago, I was sitting at my desk (work with computers for a living, so my posture is generally poor) and I got this really bad, sharp pain on the left side of my head. It was bad for the rest of the day, but got better. Since then, I can make the pain reoccur specifically by nodding my head up and down or stretching in very specific ways. If I shake my head side to side (i.e. moving my head in the "no" motion) the pain does not occur. I'm don't have hypochondria, but one of the guys at work jokingly said, "Maybe it's a tumor." So now I'm worried about that. I went to my general care doctor and she said it is likely muscular. I've also had a runny nose as well, but the sinuses, as far as I know, wouldn't go that far above the ear. So to recap, it's not a constant pain, I can trigger it by doing specific things, then it goes away when I stop doing those things. I guess that something muscular makes sense here, but I'm still worried. I should also mention that the pain is there in the morning, but goes away pretty quickly after I get up and start moving around.
