Migraine or something else??

I’ve just over the last few days had this head pain. It went from the back of my head left side and now moved to around my eye + eyebrow area. I’ve had headaches around the left side before but never this long.
I did start to get concerned when I one night woke up from this head pain, had the usual tumor scare and so I’ve been afraid to fall asleep since then, although it’s only happened once and I’ve slept since then and woke up fine.
It’s like a 4-5 out of 10 on pain scale, doesn’t stop me from getting on with my life and I don’t feel nausea or anything, but definitely noticeable.
I’m just wondering if it’s stress or migraine or something else. Just needing a peace of mind so I can stop stressing and making it worse. Anybody else had this???

It sounds like a tension headache. Have you been really stressed or anxious recently? It could also be a migraine like you mentioned! Try to drink some water and stay busy. That helps me when I get tension headaches. I hope you feel better soon!
