Pain in left temple and behind left eye

for the last two days, i have been aware of a slight pain behind my left eye and behind my left temple. when i press on the temple, it feels better but i can feel my pulse quite strongly. it isnt too severe and isnt stopping me from working etc. it isnt disturbing my vision. i havent (so far) taken any medication for it as i havent needed to. it isnt continuous, it comes and goes, but always on the same side of my head. i do work infront of a computer all day and use a computer at home in the evening.
can anyone tell me what type of headache this is and what is best to do to sort it out? could it be due to my menstrual cycle (just finished period)? does it sound like a tension headache? any input will be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Re: Pain in left temple and behind left eye

I get headaches that start out like this all of the time and then turn into migraines. Its hard to diagnose headaches like this since it could be sinuses, even though its usually not. I'd take some OTC medicine to try to get rid of it, just in case it turns into something worse.

Normally hormonal headaches come before or at the start of your cycle. And tension headaches usually go across your whole forehead.
