My husband has been having these stabbing pains on the right side of his head like behind his eye. This comes very sudden and only lasts a few seconds, but is very painful. This has been goin on for 2 weeks. It also is making the vision in his right eye blurry. He has been to the er and they just give him pain meds that don\'t work. He is a truck driver so he can\'t take to much that makes him sleepy. What could the problem be? Angela.
It's time for your husband to see his own doctor and get these headache checked out.

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

The treatments might work just fine, yet there may not be any solid research to back them up. This is the case in treating patellofemoral pain. Patellofemoral pain is often felt behind the kneecap (the patella ). Patellofemoral pain mainly occurs during activities such as climbing stairs, squatting, running, and kneeling. Patellofemoral pain is very common, especially in athletes. No one really understands what causes the pain. There may be several different causes. But no matter what the cause, the standard treatment is physical therapy to strengthen and stretch the tissues around the kneecap. But does physical therapy really work better than the simple effects of time? So far there has been no strong research to prove it. These researchers in Australia looked at 67 people who had patellofemoral pain. All the patients were younger than 40, and they all had...
