Suffering from headache in front of my head, pain behind eye. Due to smoking of weed?

Hey, I have a headache at the front of my head and right behind my eye when I smoke weed. I usually smoke weed with a bit of tobacco but not just ripped off the cigarette. I am wondering if weed/tobacco is the cause of these sometimes sharp headaches/pains . Ive been smoking for about a year and it started about 2 months ago.

Welcome to HCM
Thanks for the query,

Your headache may not be related to smoking. How ever, you need evaluation to find out the cause of headache. This will require a clinical interview with a neurologist and brain scan. This will rule out any secondary causes of headache. If the scan comes normal, you may benefit with anti-migraine treatment. This will be guided by your local neurologist

Hope this clarifies

Best wishes
