    blondygirl,

     

    -:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-•*Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!*•-:¦:-•:*'""*:•.-:¦:-

     

    It means you should get off the computer and go see your doctor. Wink

     

    Seriously though, these pains could be any number of things. The only person who can tell you wat they are and what they mean is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination. Nobody can diagnose via the Internet.

     

    Please take care of yourself by calling your doctor? Unexplained head pain should always be checked out.

     

    Let me know what you find out?

     

    Welcome again,

    Teri

      well i don't have the pains all the time they are just once and a while and they do not last for very long they are just a few seconds but the pain is sharp the pain could be a 7 or an 8.

       

       

      could they be cluster headaches?Frown

      Wow. You replied quickly!

       

      No, lasting only a few seconds, they wouldn't be cluster headaches. They might be ice pick headaches. Take a look at Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.

       

      Even if you don't have them all the time, please do mention them to your doctor when you see him or her? Statistically, it's unlikely to be anything serious, but you don't want to be on the wrong end of those statistics.

       

      Teri

      That doesn't necessaryily mean anything bad. Do get it checked out. It's most likely not serious, but you need to know. Then you can relax. OK?

      you will need a referal from your gp, but a neurologist that specialises in migraines and head pain, the site help for heache has a page http://www.helpforheadaches.com/doctors/migraine-headache-specialists.htm

      which hopefully will have a hospital or clinic near you.
