Hi, for a few months now, I've been having an on-off pain in my left temple. When I lay on my right side and try to sleep, just as I am about to drop off I get a shooting pain which spreads from my temple right down neck and over the left side of my face which wakes me. When I sleep on my left side, this doesn't happen.

I often have a sore neck, and have to move it from side to side to 'crack' it, and sometimes gives me a headache in the back of my head. Has anyone and ideas what this could be ?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ste1200,

Sorry to hear about the pain you have been experiencing. We do not have any medical training here and are therefore unable to diagnose, we can only express a personal opinion.

I think the best thing you can do is go and see your Doctor about it as he/she is best to advise you here.

Please let us know how you get on?

take care
