For the past 3 months i have been getting weird sensations in my head. Like my head is freezing. Also i get sharp stabbing pains on both sides of my head and at the back of my head. Then also pressure on temples and the front section of head with my nose bone paining and my cheekbones. I have no nausea or vomiting. I am very concerned. Please help, Wendy.
