My head hearts

I have a constant pain in the back of my head on the left side.  I can not lay on it or even touch it because it is so tender.  Why is this??

Could be a pulled, strained, or irritated muscle from traps to occipital. Ice, massage and a visit to the chiropractor tomorrow are suggestions.

What you are describing just might be a symptom of temporal arteritis. Are you having other symptoms--like weakness or nausea?

By any chance have you experienced a head injury? Sometimes those side effects can occur right away or can come later on. For example, I had a concussion and the symptoms never showed until a week or so after the incident, I still will get severe pain every now and then and severe headaches. Another possible cause could be due to stress or like some of the above mentioned.

I have had nausea a little, feeling a little dizzy at times and my left check tingles.
