I would observe two weeks and get a biopsy if it persists. Not meant to scare you, my sister-in-law died from soft tissue sarcoma at age 36 initially presented with a lump like this. Yours might be nothing to worry, but better safe than sorry.

Midijane, thank you for the reply! It really helped knowing that I'm not the only one struggling with this and feeling like a baby. I'm feeling better today - able to keep down fluid and meds, able to sleep last night after the pain and sensitivities subsided. I am pretty sure that my migraine is hormone-related. I never had any migraine befo...
