These startling, sometimes frightening head pains have been described in various ways: In the beginning, when I began having migraines, I suffered a sudden slash of pain, very intense and quick on the right side of my head. 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 ...
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.

There is some convincing evidence that altered kinematics is a major factor in patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS). Kinematics refers to patterns of movement -- specifically how the patellofemoral joint and the knee joint rotate and glide in relation to one another during motion. The patellofemoral joint occurs where the patella (kneecap) glides up and down over the femur (thighbone). Increased pressure from contact between the patella and the femur can lead to PFPS. This is called retropatellar stress -- it means behind the kneecap. Stress on the patellofemoral joint is made worse by rotations of the lower leg during weight-bearing activities. And repetitive actions with weight-bearing load during running and jumping increase retropatellar stress. The result is PFPS. In this study, physical therapists attempt to use a two-dimensional (2-D) method of measuring knee alignment. The measurement was called the frontal plane projection angle (FPPA). The hope was to find a simple tool to use ...
