    My husband gets an infrequent, excruciating sharp, stabbing, throbbing pain on the right, upper, back portion of his head (brain). It lasts from 5 to 20 seconds. He's had maybe a few or so in the last year. It's been happening for about five years. What could it be?

    They sound like Ice Pick head aches. Go see a migraine specialist. He may prescribe Indocine. It's like key to a lock. If that does not work I don't know what to tell you. I have Ice picks! Ughhhh!
