by the side of my head(eyes)
Expert:  Dr. Mark replied 8 years ago.
This could be from a condition called temporal arteritis. It's due to inflammation of the temporal artery. Often the artery is tender to the touch. Blood work can be done to help make this diagnosis. It's a serious condition as it can lead to loss of vision.
Other possiblities are and inflammed nerve or muscle spasms. You need to see your doctor for this problem. It might be something serious or not, so please get checked.
