Temporal Headache on the right side whenever shaking head
Hello, My name is Jason.
I've had a moderate headache above my right temple (only in this region) only when I shake my head.
It has been going on for about a week.
The headache actually started to show up 2 days after I had a very light boxing sparring and an intense physical work out.
It was a very light sparring and I didn't feel any pain after the sparring.
But I have no idea if it's caused by Subdural Hematoma at all.
It just worries me because I already had a surgery due to this condition 7 years ago.
I feel none of just a little bit of headache when I don't shake my head.
I felt a lot of pressure on my entire head only once two days ago (at night) ever since I started to have a headache but it has not happened ever since.
I sometimes get tingly feelings on the right side of my head but it's not so severe.
My neck and shoulder muscles are not exactly stiff at all.
I can move them just fine.
I don't have any fever and my hands are not cold.
I'm not so sure what is causing my headache.
What seems to cause my headache?
What can I do to fix it?
Do you recommend that I continue boxing?
Thank you so much. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Jason,
How are you? Can you elaborate on the previous head surgery? Headaches associated with physical exertion such as boxing may be due to exertion headache. Majority of this is related to migraine or cluster headaches. However, if it persists, further evaluation is necessary to determine the headache cause and to rule out organic causes. At this point, you can avoid boxing or take preventive medicines prescribed by your doctor. Have this evaluated further for proper management. Take care and hope to hear from you soon.
