Hi,I'm new to the group. My son had that exact type of pain for 2 years when he was 8. He has had daily chronic headaches since he was 6. The odd thing is that when he was getting the stabbing nerve pain, he wasn't having the true migrains during those 2 years. We had several diagnosis. He wasn't given anymore than OTC for pain and nothing touched the pain. He was diagnosed with trigiminal neuralgia and then cluster headaches because the pain was better when he moved around. He was hyper most of the time because the pain got worse when he couldn't go anymore and finally fell asleep at around 10:30 pm. He was given an oxygen tank but it didn't help either. The thing that finally got rid of the pain was acpuncture. I can't say if it might help your pain or not. It hasn't helped since with the daily chronic pain he has now so maybe we just got lucky with it then.
