I have Intermittent sharp pain on left side of my head. The pain is left side, near back of head. It started 6 days ago, I have tried several over counter meds. Excedrin Migraine, to BC Powders. Nothing has worked.
I have made appointment with my Doctor, next week. What do you think this pain could be. I have never suffered with Migraine Head aches before. Thank You, Joann.
The pain you describe could be any number of things. You don't mention how long the pain lasts. If it lasts just seconds, it could be ice pick headaches, but only your own doctor will be able to confirm a diagnosis. You can find some information on ice pick headaches in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics .
Are you having any other symptoms? If not, these are unlikely to be Migraines because Migraines have other symptoms in addition to head pain. See Anatomy of a Migraine for more infor...
My problem is I have a sharp left back headache until now for almost 2 weeks. My first checked up was, they gave me Amoxcicillin 500mg antibiotic and Diclofenac 50mg. After 5 days I went again for a doctor .I said that the effect is nothing on me. After I drink the medicine it will be gone then after 10hours it will come again, because its 3x a day to drink. Then the Doctor change my medicine. Now he gave me MYLAN-CLARITHROMYCIN 500mg for twice a day. On the First day I drink the medicine and the side effect is diarrhea. I expected that already because the doctor told me the effect. Now its my 2nd day when i woke up I felt again the sharpness on the left back head ache. About an hour then it will be gone. I hope you can help me on this matter. I'm so bothered on it. This is the first time ive experienced. And if there are things to avoid in eating or anything I hope you can answer my question. Looking forward on it. Thank you very much! More power! Roland. &...
“Sciatica” is an old world term that refers to leg pain felt down the back of the thigh into the calf and foot. What about thigh pain? What about buttock pain? Unfortunately, “sciatica” has been wrongly applied to all types and locations of leg pain. In 1948, the use of the word “sciatica” was declared “unhelpful” by a leading orthopedic specialist because it is limited to a certain location and really does not address the origin of the pain. Over the years, many older medical terms like sciatica have become archaic as the newer research technologies give doctors clearer definitions and a better understanding of the human body. Leg pain that comes from the low back is most accurately categorized as referred pain or neurogenic pain. These terms apply to all locations and address the origin of the pain. With these newer terms, the antiquated word, “sciatica”, has no place in the modern world. Sally has been waking up with right ...
