Hi,

The location and movement of a pain gives clues as to what is going on. Normal BP's range over 90 to 140 over most anything up to 90 for the bottom number. Depends a lot on other factors as to whether the BP is an issue and pain isn't one of them. One sided matters a lot where on the head in the back is a nerve or a muscle if it is one whole side of head--hemicranium--that is a term used for migraine headache.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
