Thanks for your query.

What you describe is typical of migrainous headache that occur only on one side of head, would be associated with feeling of warmth, pulsation, association with anxiety symptoms like difficulty in breathing, nausea/vomiting. However, considering history of mild chest pain and low temperature perception in extremities I would suggest ECG, ECHO and cervical spine x-ray to rule out other causes of the above symptoms.

As far as migraine, we have effective medication like triptans, ergot alkaloids that can prevent attacks as well as abort attacks after they start. You need to identify any possible triggers for these symptoms and avoid them like food items/cold weather. You can also try out breathing relaxation exercises and meditation.

Hope you found the information useful. Let me know if you need further guidance.
