Hello,

I too have been experiencing stabbing pains in my head mostly on the right side since end of august last year - I did have a very stressful 8 months previous to that, but anyway I was convinced I had a brain tumour and to some degree I still do and still getting the headaches, but the doctors all say it is anxiety, I haven't had any further testing so I would interested to know what the neurologist says to you when you go.

Sorry that you are getting these, they really are nice, but I have been told many times that they are down to tension and anxiety.

:)

I get what you are describing every now and then, I have decided it is tension headaches.

I've get these from time to time, they are called ice pick headaches, they are a form of migraine and typically are primary headaches meaning they are benign and there is nothing causing them besides maybe like you said stress, I started getting them after I started to worry about every disease under the sun, I get them much less frequently since I started calming down.

I agree with CrazyQuacker. My doctor told me they were icepick headaches and I also get them when I'm particularly stressed. Nothing to be concerned about.
