Three days ago, I woke up with a very sharp pain in the lower right side of my head. I had migraines before so I know this is not a migraine. The pain is no longer that sharp but I can not seem to move my head and if I need to pick up something it really hurts. I have Tinnitus on the right ear, but I do not know if that has anything to do with it. I do not suffer of sinus. An odd thing is, that for a month now I had vertigo, but I stopped taking a diuretic and the vertigo stopped. I must say that I had vertigo for many years (very violent) but I stopped having it for over a year in a half. it just came back for over a month but went away.

Do you experience a stabbing feeling of pain in the chest? If you do then know that you’re in good company. You don’t need to think you’re strange or odd. Most peo...
I just started having sharp stabbing pains of the left side of my head just above the left ear. It feels like someone is stabbing with a sharp object and is very painful. It doesn't last too long. Sometimes I get them one after the other and sometimes it goes away and them comes back, but right after this happens I get tingling all over my left check and then going down to the jaw are.
I've have this now going on 3 days. Today the jabbing is going to my forehead mainly on the left side. I'm very worried. Thanks, Rose.
