Thank you Amyloo for your words of encouragement. Although I don't like to hear that others are sick too, it's of some comfort that I am not alone. Ugh, I don't have time for this headache. I have some Maxalt (?) migraine meds in the cabinet, maybe I should break them out:O) Take care!

Question for you... I was googling "electric shocks in my head" and I came across a discussion thread from 2007. Your description fits mine completely. I have been getting these shocks intermittently for the last 5-10 years... randomly. Most of the time they cluster together a couple days in a row, then nothing. Usually on the left side.
