I have a stinging pain in my head. It radiates from side to side and is in random spots in my head. A stingy pain. also sometimes my cheek gets a pin and needle sensation. What should I do? Doctors said migraine but I need proof. I'm very worried. Mia.
What kind of proof are you looking for? Unfortunately, a diagnosis of Migraine is what's called a "diagnosis of exclusion." There are no tests to confirm Migraine or say, "Hey, this is Migraine!" So, Migraine is diagnosed by reviewing your medical history and your family's, discussing your symptoms, and ruling out other possible causes of your symptoms. There's really no subjective "proof" to be offered. If you're not comfortable with the diagnosis, perhaps a second opinion is in order.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert

for more than a year i had pain in the back of my head and it turned out to be sinus infection but even with treatment the pain came back after 3 month. Now add to that pain, i have an other sharp pain in the right side of my head behind ear and i have balance problems, i pass out for seconds without really falling when im walking or even in bed. And sometimes I can't stand more than one voice or noise and sometimes i imagine that something is going to fall while i try to catch it but nothing is really going to fall. i visited my docter and he recommended an M.R.I brain scan. any suggestions about what could it be?

My husband has been having these stabbing pains on the right side of his head like behind his eye. This comes very sudden and only lasts a few seconds, but is very painful. This has been goin on for 2 weeks. It also is making the vision in his right eye blurry. He has been to the er and they just give him pain meds that don\'t work. He is a truck driver so he can\'t take to much that makes him sleepy. What could the problem be? Angela.
It's time for your husband to see his own doctor and get these headache checked out. They could be ice pick headaches, but the blurry vision isn't common with ice pick headaches, and the only person who can safely give your husband a diagnosis and tell him what to do about them is a doctor who can review his medical history, discuss his symptoms, and examine him in person. You can find some information about ice pick headaches in Ice Pick Heada...
