thanks for sending your query to us
This appears to be only a anatomical difference,which you probably did not notice before.Your right and left sides of body are not symmetrical
Slight headache can be managed with life style modification,rest,proper diet and exercise.
In most of intra cranial abnormalities,skull size is not effected,that is the reason we can safely reassure you that you are fine.
Do get back to me in case of any further query in this regard..

Thanks for getting back to us,
this is the reason,your headache is not organic and only due to work load,that you get it after the days work.
This indicates that the rest and diet which keep you charged for the is not able to keep up with your work load.This is best managed with as I mentioned ,life style management.
Take care of your diet,as we do not want a dip in your blood sugar in the evening.
Eat well,rest and exercise.
Get back to me if needed.
