Cookie, it is difficult to say what the problem is without being able to examine you first, but it might be due to tension head ache or even temporal arteritis. The best would be to see your doctor and have it sorted out, but in the meantime you can mail me at if you’re interested in something I wrote on the most common types of headaches. Good luck.
