Is it norml to have headaches and migraines on right side of the head ?

Is it normal to feel headaches and migraines from the right side of your head every time? There are times when I get a headache or a migraine almost every other day and it goes on for a week or two. Then I don t get frequent headaches or migraine for weeks or maybe months, but then it happens again. Every time its only on the right side of my head. Why is it always on the right side? Is it normal?

Hi Latin,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
There is no cause found out as to why the migraine happens, whatever has been thought of till now are just assumptions. But there are few typical characteristics of migraine that is it usually a unilateral or a single sided headache. No need to worry it is normal in this condition. Visit a good neurologist and get treated appropriately.
Good Luck

Migraines are typical and atypical
you never know which side they will occur
As from your description of ur condition it looks normal
You should consult a neruologist where he can start prophylactic therapy on either beta blockers of calcium channel blockers or amitriptiline where you number of headaches occuring in a week can be reduced
Thank you again for using healthcaremagic
