I started getting headaches late 2009 sharp, shooting pain in the top of my head and numbness in my face that passed when the pain subsided. Now when I get these "headaches" the pain is localized to the back of my neck and head with ear pressure and pain behind my ears. There is also pain in my eye area and I am sensitive to light.
