Cough headache

When i cough i get a sharp pain on the right side of my head (where the temporalis muscle is). I also notice the right temporal artery becomes more swollen everytime i cough. However, the left temporal artery doesn't become so swollen and it doesn't hurt. If i cough repeatedly then the pain becomes worse and is a pulsatile pain on that area of the scalp (temporalis muscle).

Sometime ago i had an MRI done and it was O.K. and also a c-reactive test and came back negative. So, it doesn't seem to be temporal arteritis (im too young also.). BTW, that affected area also hurts when i talk for long periods of time.

Any clue?
