Hey, for the past couple years I've been getting these headaches like on the side of my head on the top. They're like a a dull pain that will go a way after awhile, but is starting freak me out. I asked my doctor and he said it's probably nothing to worry about but right now it's hurting more and when I swallow it hurts a little more. Plus I'm coughing a lot for some reason. It's probably just parania but idk. any help?

Is this only one sided headache?
Are you telling that your headaches are getting worse when you are swallowing?
