Ice-pick headache?
by: Linda

I am female, 47 years. Main symptoms are sharp, sudden and extremely painful stabs at my right temple or a couple inches above with painful sensitivity in front of my right ear, in my right jaw and cheekbone. There are several "stabs" a minute but sometimes blinking or moving my eye also brings on a stab of pain above my temple.

I have had these in the past but not for a long while and they have not typically lasted this long - approx. 36 hours at this time. I have had no tests previously as I thought allergies were the culprit and allergy med with ibuprophen has worked before. I have not smoked in more than 20 years.

This is so painful! Please help!



If you have not seen a neurologist or a headache specialist, I would recommend this so you can get an accurate diagnosis and some treatment.
