I'm 15, and for the last 3/4 days I have been having stabbing like pains on the right side of my head, mainly when I first wake up or stand up! I am a worrier and tend to think of extreme things and make myself worried even more, I am going to the doctors tomorrow but I am afraid they will just give me pain killers. Leigh.
We hope your doctor was able to explain the pains and help you. Before prescribing medications, doctors should diagnose what the pains are if at all possible. You don't mention how long these pains last. If they're only seconds long, they might be ice pick headaches. You can find more information in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.
If your doctor isn’t able to help you, it may well be time to consult a Migraine and headache specialist. It’s important to note that neurologists aren’t necessarily Migraine and headache specialists
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. Then also pressure on temples and the front section of head with my nose bone paining and my cheekbones. I have no nausea or vomiting. I am very concerned. Please help, Wendy.
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

It started at one point and webbed out to what it felt like a inch in length. I had never felt this type of pain and it scared me.They are intense, sharp, stabbing pain about your skull, as if you were being stabbed with an ice pick.I was just wondering if anyone gets sudden pains in their heads. It can be in the front sometimes, or sometimes it's in my temple. It really varies.I was awakened at 3 a.m. by excruciating, stabbing pains on the top right front of my head, kind of behind the eye. lasted about 30 seconds.I get those types of stabbing pains too, I have no clue as to what is causing it. I get them all over my head. They can last for a few seconds to a few minutes. I started noticing them after my migraines started to get to ...
