Sharp, Stabbing like pains right side of forehead??
« on: April 02, 2014, 06:57:03 PM »
I recovered from Hypochondria about two months ago but now I'm having a weird feeling in my head and doing my best to compress my anxiety before it can take over. Anyway today around 11:00 am I started having random stabbing like pains in the right side of my forehead. They last maybe one-two seconds and I've had about 6-7 since this morning. My mom said it could be a sinus headache due to the changing weather or a possible migraine. Should I go to a doctor? Or only if it persists for a certain amount of time?

You could see your doctor just for peace of mind but a lot of people get these, they are called ice pick head aches, I've seen about 20+ people complain on them on here not including me. They are considered a primary headache meaning that the cause is benign, some do consider them migraines, it could be sinus related because I have a bunch of sinus issues and I get them from time to time, I find that stretching out my neck also helps a bit

Don't fear! These are 100% ice-pick headaches! They scared me the first time I had them too! (I was laying down getting ready to sleep and I felt like someone took a nail and had jabbed it into my temple over and over again.)

They usually will go away on their own after a while, and they tend to happen SO fast that headache pills wouldn't be effective. (my episode lasted... probably 15-20 minutes which is about how long it takes an Excedrin to kick in for me)

Thanks guys. I guess I'll just live through it they've been happening less and less and with less severe pain since they started maybe they'll start to go away.
