Hello,

Thanks for the query

I understand your concern

Headache can be due top many causes like migraine, tension headache, brain infection/tumor/bleed. The possibilities in your case could be tension headache or migraine headache. You need a detailed neurological examination to understand if you need a brain scan or not. If the scans are normal you may benefit with anti0-migraine medications like amitriptyline, topiramate, valproate along with rest, relaxation, regular food and sleep habit.

Your hip pain also needs evaluation

Please consult a local neurologist

Please get back to me in case you have any concern

Will a migraine cause the skin sensitivity around my temple?
 
 
Answered by Dr. Gopal Krishna Dash 25 hours later
Yes, Migraine can cause these changes.
If you have any problem, I suggest you to get examined so that things will be clarified. My response has the limitation as I do not have the advantage of examining you.

Best wishes
