Head hurts when I swallow

First a little history. I have been diganosed with Laryngopharyngeal Reflux (LPR) and no sort of medication or lifestyle change seems to help. I am clearing my throat constantly as one of the symptoms or LPR is the feeling of flem or a lump in my throat. I also seem to swallow a lot due to the feeling of flem in my throat. Recently everytime I swallow I get a pain directly over my right eyebrow. I know... it seems strange, but the pain only lasts while I am swallowing. I don't know what could be causing this, maybe a nerve issue? This seems far fetched I know, but has anyone else out there experienced something like this? I don't know what else to do. I may have to bite the bullet and go to the doctor about this, but as I said it sounds like an outlandish symptom. :)
