I've been having Sharp Pain in my head and Eye Twitching a lot of times and the eye twitching is in my left eye and I'm having vision problems and dizziness. Could it been a brain tumor? Do I need to be checked out by my doctor? Thank you so much! -Danielle.

Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

It started at one point and webbed out to what it felt like a inch in length. I had never felt this type of pain and it scared me. They are intense, sharp, stabbing pain about your skull, as if you were being stabbed with an ice pick. I was just wondering if anyone gets sudden pains in their heads. It can be in the front sometimes, or sometimes it's in my temple. It really varies. I was awakened at 3 a.m. by excruciating, stabbing pains on the top right front of my head, kind of behind the eye. lasted about 30 seconds. I get those types of stabbing pains too, I have no clue as to what is causing it. I get them all over my head. They can last for a few seconds to a few minutes. I started noticing them after my migraines started to get to ...
