How are you? Are there other symptoms present? Throbbing headaches may be attributed to migraine headaches. Nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and sound may also be observed. On the other hand, sharp headaches that lasts for a few seconds only may be caused by ice pick headaches. Rest, ice packs and pain medications may help. However , if it persists, you may need to have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. Take care and do keep us posted.
