Is it norml to have headaches and migraines on right side of the head ?

Is it normal to feel headaches and migraines from the right side of your head every time? There are times when I get a headache or a migraine almost every other day and it goes on for a week or two. Then I don t get frequent headaches or migraine for weeks or maybe months, but then it happens again. Every time its only on the right side of my head. Why is it always on the right side? Is it normal?

Hi Latin,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
There is no cause found out as to why the migraine happens, whatever has been thought of till now are just assumptions. But there are few typical characteristics of migraine that is it usually a unilateral or a single sided headache. No need to worry it is normal in this condition. Visit a good neurologist and get treated appropriately.
Good Luck

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar

Migraines are typical and atypical
you never know which side they will occur
As from your description of ur condition it looks normal
You should consult a neruologist where he can start prophylactic therapy on either beta blockers of calcium channel blockers or amitriptiline where you number of headaches occuring in a week can be reduced

I bumped my right side of forehead on top of the car real hard. After 5 mins, I was fine....I did not have any symptoms or lose consciousness. Either 1 or 2 wks later, I touched where I hit my forehead and it really hurt. Now I have major headaches or migraine on that area where I bumped my head ...Is it related?

hi, I have had dizziness, naseau, headaches which seemed to start about 7 months ago. Have been to an ENT and Neurologist. The neurologist says it is likely migraine related ( vestibular migraine ). My hearing was tested and that was ok, I had a balance test and that was ok. So my neurologist has put me on Amitryptiline to help prevent the migraine, and also am taking Meloxicam to help with inflammation (I have had neck problems in the past). Everyday I continue to get a headache. It starts way deep in the center/back of my head then seems to be more pronounced on the right side in back of my head. Now, within the past 4 weeks, I am getting on and off numbness in the outside lobe of my right ear. Certainly my dizziness and nausea have improved, but I still have moments of floating, or bouncing feeling (like I am walking on a trampoline). I just seem to always have this dull ache in the back of my head, and I notice when I move my head (especially like nodding up and down) the pain increases almost like a knife pain or splitting type of pain. I don t know what to do next. My neurologist says the types of migraines can go on a long time. But it has been 7 months since I have felt like myself. Thanks JS

hi there! so i have lately (over the past 2 months) become extremely tired even when i have a good nights sleep. I have been getting headaches- which i dont normally have, and am much more easily annoyed. Also, i gained almost 10 lbs in 2 weeks and 3 months ago about half the hair on the left side of my head fell out. I am just wondering if all these can be consequences of stress or something more serious.
