What kind of headache gets better by shaking your head hard?

Posted , 1 user is following.

English isn't my first language so apologies in advance.

I'm a 22 year old male with no history of smoking, alcohol consumption, steroids,etc.

i have a headache going on for months that's located about the right back side of my head and recently i also have a sense of discomfort and fatigue in my right eye . Rather than a sensation of pain the headache is like a constant uncomfortable presence of pressure and heaviness over that area that really impairs my ability to think whether it comes to studying or other activities and it also induces anxiety and I also seem to have memory issues.

i tried shaking my head hard to see how it would affect it, of course when you shake it hard you naturally feel a brief mild pain in whole of your head but in addition to that i feel stronger, heavier pain in the region of my headache and after doing that my headache seem to got temporarily better , specially a couple of times the discomforting sensation in my eye seems to abandon almost completely. Sometimes i notice that It also seems much less present immediately after waking up even at times I might not be sleep deprived or in need of sleep.

Due to coronavirus i have limited access to medical professionals, What do you think may be the cause? Could it be a tumor or pseudo-tumor(iih)?

Thank you
