I think that it would be something that I would certainly have checked out. Hopefully, it will turn out to be nothing, but this could be a sign of carotid stenosis (narrowing). A condition that can be very serious. Good Luck
Is this a new condition? Is the headache pulsating to the beat of your heart? Is it the "worst headache" you have ever had? If you press your carotid artery, does the HA pain change? You want to see your doctor- call and make an appt so they can rule out any risk of a blockage of the artery or a weakening of the wall of the carotid artery
Thank you guys for the help and my headaches feel like my brain is about to explode my carotid artery right now just is sensitive and feels as if it's swollen and if i touch it it feels as if i got punched really bad on the right side of my neck. It doesn't change my headaches but there ARE times when my headache worsens and levels down and spikes up again and levels down again.
