Hello, I was woken up at 5:45am with extreme pain on my left temple area. It felt like someone was stabbing me, throbbing, sharp. All I could do was hold my head and rock myself.
Brief medical history; I'm a 40-year old female. I've had 5 surgeries on my head, from 1997-2004. I had a frontal lobe brain tumor on the left side. When they removed it approx. 3 months later I started having seizures. I currently take tripletal, neurontin, vimpat & keppra. I do have tmj, I wear a nightguard. Also, I have a lot of stress in my life at the moment. The pain has subsided...I'm feeling a little throbbing in the area. I took some excedrin.
This is the first time it's happened to me, what do you think the pain I felt was caused from? Do you think it's anything I need to be concerned with? Thank you....
