Throbbing pain in right temple. Occurs once in a month. Matter of concern?

For many years now, on rare occasions I feel a throbbing sharp pain in my right temple. Whenever it happens I have to close my eyes and not move for awhile. I usually accompany this with a light massage to the area. It goes away after a short time, but I d like to know if that s something I should be worrying about. As I said before, it doesn t happen often, maybe once a month or less. Any idea what this could be?

For what you write, your symptoms are suggestive of a tension headache, that is brought upon by stress.
But if you have symptoms like blurring of vision, nausea or it becomes worse please meet your physician.
