I see that it has been a while, but did you ever find an answer to your question?  I am not a doctor and can't diagnose you over the internet, but I suspect that your pain is related to either headaches/migraines or blood pressure.  If it persists for a while, I would recommend you have it checked out by a doctor whoe can take into consideration your entire medical history.


If you've already found the solution, please consider returning to the site and letting us know what you've learned.  I'm sure there are others who could benefit from your experience!
