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
