only one

You mean the other 3 were removed?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

In that case, one common explanation would be TMJ. This can cause pain radiating from the jaws to the sides of the head, the top of the head and even the face. It is more common in those under a lot of stress due to involuntary clenching and/or grinding of teeth during sleep. You might want to visit a dentist and get a panorex x-ray that shows both TM joints. This can identify a malocclusion, excessive excursion, and any wear-and-tear in the joint, any one of which can lead to pretty bad TMJ.

Ok i ok try to book an appointment with dentist and I will see

Great. Hope all works out for the best. You might also consider getting a head CT, if possible, as this will show not just the TMJs but also the sinuses, the skull and the brain itself. It can rule out a lot of possible causes.

THANK YOU AND Where can I get a head CT ??

Call your doctor's office and tell them you're having "intractable headaches with nausea" and they should approve a non-contrast head CT. You can typically get this at a hospital or imaging center in your area.
