Post Sharp pain in left side of head when i move my head.....

i woke up this morning with an extremly sharp pain in the left side of my head above my ear whenever i would move my neck, i also noticed some pain in my neck on the same side towards the back, but it hasent returned.....

i told my mom about it and she gave me one of her migrane pills (some small 10mg pill that started with M)

but anyways, could this be some kind of tension headache because it happens when i move my head? could it be from sleeping "wrong"?

im missing class today because the pain is so sharp :/

I wonder if that is some kind of spasm or something or maybe you did sleep on it funny. Definitely though, go see a Doctor because you never know. If it's been there for more than a day especially.
take care

and also like 4 months ago i was having rebound headaches that were caused from taking too much ibproufin because of an original tension headache for about a week untill i stopped the ibproufin (atleast thats what the dr says they were).. durring that time i had blood work and a CT scan done, and both came clear.... so i can be reasonablly certain that theres nothing there
