Pain in only the right side of head

There is a slight dull pain in the right side of my head that gets worst the more active I am. It happened to me once last week, but then went away. I feel it again right now and it s so area specific I feel like I could trace out the area with a marker were my head shaved, but it s not a very strong pain. On a scale from 1-10 I d put it at a 1.5-2 at most, but it gets up to about a 6. What do you think?

As you describe above can be a migraine attack. It is a recurrent attack of dull or some time severe pain mostly one side of the the head.It is associated with nausea and vomiting. The condition may be worse in the patient who is sensitive to light or high pitch sound. The attack will last for 2-3 hours and patient get relief after deep sleep.
Medication is not helpful for relief of acute pain. According to me first you recognize the pain aggravating factor and try to remove for the same.
Some precaution you may take:
1. Don't empty stomach for along time.
2. Take plenty of water in the morning and avoid constipation.
3. Avoid smoking.
4. Deep sleep.
5. Regular warm up exercise before start your official job.

Good Luck
Please don't hesitate if you want any more information.
