Hi good day sir/mam, I've been experiencing this pain a while now. My jaw and head hurts but only On the left side. For instance if I bend down with my head facing downwards and raise back up it pains a lot for a minute or two then slightly easier to bear with. My mother suffers with high blood pressure but there isn't any other sicknesses that I know of in the family. So can you provide me with an explanation on why this is happening to me please, i'll be very thankful. Have a blessed day! Aaron.
Two things you said might indicate Migraine:
the pain being on one side and

That said, what you describe could be any number of issues. There's simply no way for anyone to explain why this is happening...
My righthand eye was operated april 2013 and I started having sudden pain back in my head in december and I am still experiencing the pain what do I do? Iteh.
Please, get off the computer right now and call your doctor. Unexplained head pain should always be investigated, and the only person who can safely tell you what's causing it and what should be done about it is a doctor who reviews your medical history, discusses your symptoms with you, and examines you - in person .
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

We've known for a long time that if you're going to stop taking opioids, it's usually best to taper off gradually to prevent severe withdrawal symptoms. But now, there's another very good reason not to abruptly stop taking opioid medications – it can actually increase your sensitivity to pain. A recent study conducted by the Department of Neurophysiology at the Center for Brain Research at the Medical University of Vienna in Austria has found that the sudden withdrawal of opioids leads to the long-term activation of pain impulses being sent to the brain. It creates a kind of memory trace in the pain system. They knew that sustained pain can set up a cycle of increased pain sensitivity, but the researchers were surprised to discover that the abrupt withdrawal of opioids does something very similar by increasing the concentration of calcium ions in the nerve cells of the spinal cord. On the positive side, the research team also discovered that i...
