Sharp Pain On Right Side Of Head, Comes And Goes....

I have been experiencing sharp pain on the right side of my head that comes and goes. It stays for a length of time, though sometimes it goes away quickly. What could this be?

Answer

Flossiemay,

Welcome to MyMigraineConnection!

If they last only seconds, they could be ice pick headaches. You can read more about ice pick headaches in Ice Pick Headaches - The Basics.

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. It's impossible to diagnose via the Internet.

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

Welcome again,

Teri
