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? Age: 18. Never had any headaches until one year ago. Malek

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.

Hello, this morning I woke up to a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my head. I have never experienced anything like it before and it happens every few minutes, sometimes constantly. I have been bedridden all day due to the fact that these quick pains sometimes make me stop what I am doing. They last around 5 seconds. I am 14 years old and not sure what this could be. sincerely, Vivian.
It's possible that these pains you're having are ice pick headaches. You can read more about them in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics .
Please tell your parents about these headaches and ask them to take you to the doctor. Unexplained headaches should always be checked out. Nobody can tell you through the Internet what's causing them. The only person who can do that is a doctor, after he or she examines you in person.
Good luck, John Claude Krusz and Teri Robert
