Will it stop hurting if I cut the right side of my head off?

So, I'm pretty sure that I'm on the tail end of what fits the definition of a migraine. It hurts a lot less than it did. What do I say when I call the doctor's office?

For the past 4 days I have had a pretty bad headache on the right side of my head. Most of that area hurts, but right behind my ear, behind my right eye and the inside of my right nostril hurt worse than anywhere else. The pain has luckily not been enough to put me totally out of commission, but I am definitely operating at much less than full capacity. I didn't get any of the 'aura' that some other people describe, but I did have a few nights of really weird vivid dreams before hand.
During two years of almost constant stress, this happened anywhere from once/month to once/3 months (always in the same areas). I'm not experiencing stress like that now and it has been 10 months since it last happened. As far as I know, I'm not allergic to anything.
So, what do I say when I call up the doctor's office? Do I just make an appointment, and bring a typed list in with me, or will that make me look like a hypochondriac/drug scammer?
