Headache when I turn head to my right.

For about three weeks I've had a strange headache that comes and goes dozens of times each day. It's only on the right side of my head, maybe two or three inches above my ear. It starts out sharp and fades. Turning my head to the right often triggers it, and sometimes nodding. (Coughing, sneezing and exercise don't trigger it).
It's not horribly painful, nor do I have other symptoms. What could possibly be going in?

  • I have had a similar problem, on and off for many years - with me even wondering if it was a blood clot. It turned out to be caused by having lifted something awkward or heavy on that side and my excellent osteopath just manipulated my neck and back and all was well. It was my doctor, though who, after a thorough examination thought that it was a symptom of a problem with the nerves in my neck/shoulder area. If you cannot make such a comparison and conclusion, you ought to have a thorough check-up.
