What is the cause of the pain in the left back of the head

Headaches can be caused by many different stimuli, including emotional stress, fatigue, medication use, and acute pain.
The presence of left hindbrain pain, with varying length of onset, can suggest different causes.
If the left posterior cerebral pain is chronic, most often consider migraine headaches, which are usually unilateral, often occurring upon waking, and may be accompanied by nausea, vomiting, photophobia, phonophobia, and hypersensitivity to stimuli.
If there is occasional pain in the back of the left side of the head, most often consider tension headache, which is due to persistent contraction of the muscles in the head and neck.
Other possible causes are left-sided intracranial occupying lesions, vascular neurological lesions, and trauma to the left side of the head.
However, it is difficult for the general public to determine on their own whether they have these diseases. Therefore, if left posterior cerebral pain persists, is difficult to be relieved or recurrent, or even gradually worsens, you should promptly consult a doctor to clarify the specific cause so as not to miss the disease.
