I have had shooting pain on the right side of my head for the past three days. Prior to that I had a headache that moved around my head that lasted for four days. This pain that I have now feels like electrifying pain which shoots on my right side and does not last but a second or two. I have no other symptoms. Sometimes it happens frequently like maybe twice in a minute, but can also go away for several minutes to even hours and then comes back. It has even woke me up during sleep. I am not a person to get headaches and am generally quite healthy. I keep thinking it will go away, but am not sure if I should go to the doctors.
I have the same problem I am 25 and have had these off and on for the past few years. Mine is always on the left side of my head in the middle of my skull. I am now having them more often like 30 - 40 a day. Some lasting almost 30 seconds. The pain has started to get really bad. I will have like 2-4 back to back and then go for hours with out one. I don't have a runny nose or sinus problems. I was told by one doc that is could be from nutrition problems. And I know im not the best at eating healthy, but I can't help but think there is more to this. The shooting pain has now started to migrate down to my cheek bone at times, this has not happend before. I am considering going to a neurologist. Has anyone found anything new out with this condition?
