For the past 3 months i have been getting weird sensations in my head. Like my head is freezing. Also i get sharp stabbing pains on both sides of my head and at the back of my head.

We'd love to help, but as much as we'd like to help and answer your question, nobody can diagnose and answer questions such as yours online. The only person who can safely answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.
Unexplained symptoms such as those you're experiencing should always be checked out. Please see your doctor.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
