Sharp pain top left side of head. Mini strokes?

Full Question:

I am having a sharp pain in the left top side of my head. Its like a dime size spot. It sometimes runs a tingle up toward the front. My daughter said it could be mini strokes, is that possible? Pam.
         

 

Full Answer:

Dear Pam;

 

Although it's more likely that these pains are something else, yes, they could be indicative of a TIA or some kind of stroke activity.

 

Unexplained head pain should always be investigated. Please see your doctor.

 

Good luck,
John...
