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.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:

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...
My name is Doug, and this is the story of my wife Keri Haberstroh. Keri was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 at the age of 25. This is an update on Keri's first radiation treatment, after we learned that her cancer had spread . Subject: One Down Sent: Monday, April 3, 2006 2:08 PM Hi Everyone, Just thought I'd write to let you all know that the first treatment went well this morning. I was in and out in about half an hour. The actual treatment only takes a couple of minutes, but the set up takes a little longer. I don't feel anything and I don't see anything. The machine makes a buzzing sound and that's how I know when they are doing the radiation. They do my right hip first then my left hip. When the machine turns to do my left hip it's kind of cool what I get to look at because they screwed in a part on the machine that looks like a smiley face. So I get to end with a smile looking at me. Then I'm all don...
Having radiation? It can can produce side effects ranging from fatigue to a new "tan" – not that radiation's a day at the beach! Here's a look at some of the side effects, both short- and long-term, you may experience. Q. I’m partway through radiation, and I’m getting really tired. Is this one of the side effects? A. It sure is. Fatigue is probably the most common side effect of radiation, along with your skin becoming red and sore. What’s going on? Researchers theorize that your body is spending so much energy dealing with the “attack” going on against its cells, it has little left for anything else. Some women say they feel “dead tired.” Others, as though they’ve got a mild case of the flu. Some start to feel tired almost immediately, but for most it seems to develop later in treatment, or even after radiation is over. This fatigue can last for several months or even a year after treatment is over, so don’t be too hard ...
