    Recently I had a sharp pain shoot through my head. It has happened a few times in the past few years, and when it happens it's sharp, quick, and painful. Has this happened to anyone else?

    Hi Help Needed,


    While we cannot diagnose you online becasue we are not medical professionals, we can give you information and support. You wouldn't want to be diagnosed online  - only in person by a qualifed medical professional.


    There is a type of headache called Ice Pick Headache that has similar symptoms. You can read more about this type of headache in this article: Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.


    Now having said that, get to your doctor and have your head checked out! Then come back and let me know what he says, ok?
