Why does my head swell when I have headaches

I often have headaches and have always had them as long as I can remember.Over the past year or so I have noticed that "where" my head is hurting it is also swollen. About the size of a ping pong ball. When my head ache does go away my head is often tender and sore. During the headaches every noise seems louder by 100% , my eyes hurt, and the top of my head feels as if it is going to explode.I thought it was my blood pressure.( I have never had problems with it before except when I was 7-9 months pregnaunt (pregnant).) I tried laying on my left side. But that did not work. No matter what side I would lay on my headache seem to shift with the position I would try to take. Also when I bend down it feels as if someone has stabbed me in my head. If anyone can offer simple solutions I would be greatful. I have no insurance right now to go be checked out by a Dr.  
This last headache has lated several weeks and would really love some relief. Being I am a single mom I need to be around a while longer.
