About a week ago I first expirenced a quick sharp shooting type pain in my fore head, specifically just right of the center of the forehead. It happened about 3 times that day, each time lasting 10-15 seconds. A few days went by and it didn't happen again. Then one day it happened a couple more time, then again yesterday, and again this afternoon. It's a very intense pain and have never had anything like this happen before. I'm not taking any medications or anything else. I did return home from Iraq two months ago, and so perhaps the readjusting to civilian life, work, and family life could be a subconcious stress, though I haven't really felt that stressed out.
Any ideas what could be causing these forehead pains?
