Hello there :) , I would be very grateful if you can help me in anyway you can.
Again today I have suffered from what I can only explain as a strange and sudden headache. In the last few months this is the second time I have had this feeling, I get a sudden one sided headache lasting only 2 seconds that is not very painful, I can only struggle to describe the feeling, its as if someone had poked a finger into that specific part of my brain, or a pulse, or bubble bursting, the poking the finger thing is probably more accurate though :). Even though it is brief and not extremely painful I still find it very unsettling.
The first time I had this feeling (Roughly few months ago) is was on my left side, today though it has shifted to the right.
I understand your concern.At this point,this does not sound like an urgent case.The pain that occurred was not particularly severe and lasted for only a few seconds.I would be concerned if the pain is sudden,severe, lasts for a few seconds but occurs repeatedly throughout the day. There are no associated symptoms of visual loss, blurring of vision,ringing in the ears, eye tearing or redness.
Differentials for this will be musculoskeletal or arthritic pain, a tension headache with migraine component and cervicogenic headaches or headaches secondary to spine disorders.
In your case, the primary consideration may be musculoskeletal pain. Just continue to observe your symptoms.Taking pain relievers may be able to help. Keep us posted regarding your progress.
