    What you describe could be any number of things; some harmless, some not so harmless. The only person who really answer your question is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.

    Unexplained head pain should always be checked out. Please see your doctor and let us know what he or she says?
