I was applying pressure this morning to something an had the sharpest pain shoot from the back to side side of the right side of my head. I stopped for a minute then continued what I was doing and it happened again. All I could think about was an Aneurysm. Could this be and what should I do I am scared? Joanne.
Statistically, it's unlikely to be an aneurysm, but you certainly don't want to find yourself on the wrong end of those statistics. Any unexplained head pain should be investigated. Please see your doctor as soon as possible.

Three days ago, I woke up with a very sharp pain in the lower right side of my head. I had migraines before so I know this is not a migraine. The pain is no longer that sharp but I can not seem to move my head and if I need to pick up something it really hurts. I have Tinnitus on the right ear, but I do not know if that has anything to do with it. I do not suffer of sinus.

Hello, I have been having sharp throbbing pain and stiffness in my neck and shoulders. This pain has been going on for a few weeks. I also have bad pain all around the top of my head. The pain occurs at night and in the morning when I wake up and usually last all day long. It may go away for a couple hours throughout the day but it does come back. Other symptoms I am experiencing is nausea, occasional tenderness, I feel emotional and vulnerable, and there is pressure in my head and I do feel it when I move it or sit still. I do not feel any pressure in my eyes or any vision problems and I do not hear any swishing in my ears. I have tried over the counter medications such as Advil, Aleve, and Excedrin migraine.

I have gone to the doctor and he wasn’t very much help...
