Possible migraine?Need further investigations

Detailed Answer:
Hello, Sir.

I can understand your concern.

This could be an atypical migrainous form of a headache.

Since the location is unusual behind the ear, it is important that you get a CT scan to rule out any organic abnormalities.

The treatment would be based on test results.

If CT scan is normal, then a short course of anti migrainous and analgesic therapy will be useful.

Post your further queries if any.
Thank you
