Is it persistent or does it disappear from time to time?
What relieves it?
Lightly touching the affected area causes pain?
Is there numbness over the affected side?
The pain appears to be nerve related. Trigeminal neuralgia which affects 5th cranial nerve may lead to severe pains near the eyes, nose and lips.Carotidynia may cause pain near the temples and the neck.They may be associated with some viral infections but most causes are unknown.Medications are initially given for relief of symptoms.
the pain is allways on left side same side of sugery.when it hurts like this it last for at least 3 days.this is the first time its hurt in the back of my head.i havent found any thing that helps.sit in dark and no noise.it almost feels like a blister under my scalp.it hurts to touch my head or hair cant brush when it hurts like this.i have went to 2 neu they both said i was very compacated.no help or meds to help.im at a loss and just gave up.my mom gets this to.she tells me its from having a really bad headache .could that be all it is?
With the way you describe the pain, this sounds to be nerve related.
Aside from migraines, other conditions may cause similar symptoms: Trigeminal neuralgia and carotidynia have been mentioned.No single definite diagnostic test is used to diagnose these and usually diagnosis is made when other causes have been ruled out.
An MRI may be requested to rule other conditions.An assessment by the ENT spcialist may rule out ENT causes of the pain.A dental examination will exclude any tooth infections that may refer pain ohe head and neck.
A rare type of adult onset headache called paroxysmal hemicrania may present with sharp headaches that may involve the neck.
A neurologist or rehabilitation medicine specialist may help you further evaluate your condition.
