Headache when shaking head

Every time I shake my head up and down i feel slight pain on my left upper side. Also, when I shake it lightly, I don't feel it, I have to shake my head a bit more. I have felt this for some time, but not all the time, just most of the time. Some days, I just don't feel it. On a scale where the strongest pain is 10, I would describe this as 1, maybe occasionally 2.
I am afraid this could be a brain tumor and I keep obsessing with that.
Thank you all for answers.

I would see an ENT and get your ears checked. Then maybe an eye doctor as eye doctors can also can see signs of brain tumors. Why - your issues seem to be related to movement so it sounds like inner ear or maybe something (odds are not a tumor) with your eyes.

I have experienced the same pain today morning and yesterday night on shaking my head.  
What is the cause of such pain.
Please help me how should I diagnose this pain. Do I need to worry?

You cannot be diagnosed on the internet. Please see a doctor.

It could be dental, nerve or other pain. Only your doctor can determine the cause.

This is the biggest bunch of ******** I've ever seen. This website is utterly notorious for trying to make people's fears even worse. The people asking the questions don't give any context and yet you utter the word tumor back to them, only setting their mind off and making whatever symptom they have even worse. To anybody reading this and worried about a tumor, are the headaches getting worse over a period of months and beginning to be unrelenting? Are they accompanied by severe neurological complaints like seizures or vision loss? If these things don't develop within 2.5 months of headaches then you are fine. My god, it's a shame what people have to go through because of online MDs.

Rumpled said, "odds are not a tumor" in response to this question. She also said you cannot be diagnosed online and see a doctor. No where did she fan the flames of fear and hypochondria.

Anthony,
I would be careful giving out timelines for headaches and possible tumors. This could be construed as a diagnosis and people should not be diagnosed online by non- medical professionals.

I am not a doctor, I am a patient. This is a patient forum and for patient support.

I am sorry you took my post as fanning fears, I do try not to do so. I also have experience with a cousin who has a cancerous brain tumor currently (he is expected to pass shortly) who never had a headache before diagnosis.

There are times when my responses, yes, are not so complete and don't cover everything but I am frequently ill myself. I try to cover that by hoping people will see a doctor in person. If a person comes back, I try to get more information and help further, within my limitations.

Thanks for the support Sickandtired!
