My headaches are in the same spot every time, usually in my temple and the area right above my left ear. Its uncommon for tension headaches to be unilateral, but in my case the things that contribute to the headaches just make it that way!
Anyways - If I were you I would visit a dentist and have them check out your bite alignment - thats what my problem was. It couldn't hurt, and it sure beats taking medicine for something you don't have!

you should also look into massage- the scalp shouldn't be stuck on your skull- it should move. i tell people with 'stuck scalp' that they think too much! you can prob find a massage therapist who works with chiros that will do a 15 minute treatment and really loosen you up which will allow blood/lymph to circulate and relax those muscles. it will cost about 15- 20 bucks but a little massage can go a long way
