Sharp pain on top of my head
« on: March 05, 2011, 03:53:32 PM »
For 2 days now, I have had a sharp pain that comes and goes on top of my head.  It's only in 1 spot in the upper left top side.  It feels like someone is jamming a hammer into my head.

Has anyone ever had this?  I am scared of a tumor or aneursym or AVM.

I have been having this exact same symptom in the exact same spot. I think it has to do with neck tension because all those muscles are connected to your neck. Try loosening your neck up by relaxing all your neck muscles and moving your head in a big circular motion.

no tests..which i have to admit...freaked me out a little bit. But he said ((And google said also))) that stress is the # 1 cause of it....and tight neck muscles...look up occipital neuralgia. its very common and usually benign.
