I have an occassional temporal pain that occurs on the right side and sometimes the left side of my head. It can sometimes come as a sharp pain that last for seconds then goes away. Or it comes & goes in quick intervals then subsides completely within a few minutes. Both symptons could be non-related. But the pain is more moderate on the 2nd sympton. It's almost like a pressure build up & release. I have been tested for temporal arteritus (I am only 35) & Lupis (not sure why) & both came out negative. It doesn't sound like symptons I have read on Brain Tumors or Anuerisms, but I am not a professional on this matter & am seeking advise. My regular physician isn't sure what it could be & just says go home & keep an eye on it. Not sure what that means either. Any advice???
Already looked into that with Physician & online. It's not fitting the symptons. It is a pain only in the the temples, not around the ear or joint area. No soreness, clicking issues, or teeth grinding etc. Any other recomendations?
If you are really worried about this problem, you can always ask your doc for a head CT or MRI to rule out anything like a tumor. Have you asked about it yet? I suspect your doc is adopting a "wait and see" attitude just in case you get better on your own. An increase in events would certainly warrant further investigation.
