Hi ,
Thank you for your query.DO not panic.
Is the pain one sided?
Is it like a band pressed on your forehead?
It is associated with a stuffy nose?
Is is aggravated in periods of stress,sunlight, noxious stimuli and decrease after taking a nap?
Is there any difficulty in seeing distant objects?
It can either be migraine or tension headache.
Avoid stress,alcohol and smoking.
Take Paracetamol/acetominophen tablets thrice daily for 3 days.
Consult your doctor if the problem persists.
If you have any further queries you are free to consult me.
Hope this answers your query.
Wishing a speedy recovery.
Have a nice day.

Hi,
It might be costochondritis.
Take a pain killer and apply a balm at the local area.
