Jaw and head pain on right side, worsened by bending down?
Full Question: Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.

Take a look at Anatomy of a Migraine for more information on the possible phases of a Migraine attack and the potential symptoms. That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
