Hi jessica,


Have you ever had this type of pain before? Any time we have new, different pain a call to your doctor is in order. If it continues or gets worse please seek medical attention right away.   



Let us know how you make out, ok?

I have been having the same Very Sharp pans above my right temple as well. The pain stays in one spot. I went to sleep last night with a slight headache, when I awoke this morning, I started walking and suddenly it felt as if a bullet was coming out of my temple. It's like a Sharp pain that throbs over and over again i the same spot. i've taken headache medicine but it is still there. The only way it will feel better is if I lay on the right side of my head and not move. I'm only 21 years old. I really do not know what is going on, are there any logical explanations? I've had headaches and migraines before but this pain is much more different and is isolated.

If they're very short, they could be ice pick headaches. See more in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.


That said, nobody can diagnose via the Internet. The only person who can do that is a doctor who can review your and your family's medical history, discuss your symptoms with you, and conduct a complete examination.


Unexplained headaches should always be checked out to be sure threre's nothing seriously wrong. Please see your doctor?
