What causes pain in left side of tender head?

Last evening I suddenly experienced pain on the left side on top of my head. It was not a headache feeling, but more like tender and pain to the touch. It was also more soft to the touch. Nothing preceded this. It lasted about 3 - 5 minutes. This morning when I touch it, it is tender to the touch like I had bruised it. I have not had any injuries to the head, and nothing unusual was happening at the time. What do you think?

General & Family Physician 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms can be related to migraine. I suggest using anti inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen three times a day to relieve the pain. If the symptoms continue, I suggest to consult a neurologist and take prescription painkillers such as Triptans.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
