I found your site because I'm also suffering from the same painful intermittent stabbing on the right side of my head. I have a friend who is an acupuncturist but living in another state. I gave her a call, described my symptoms and she told me to use accupressure by massaging and pressing on the spot between my eyebrows, also putting some pressure in the areas of my temples on both sides AND another spot would be the meaty area between my big toes and the one next to it. I told her I was at work but she stated I could just kick off my shoes and rub in between the two toes with the heal of my other foot. I tried this and it seems to have worked. I don't know how long it will last but that was easy enough to handle and I can now work without the pain.....what the heck? Give it a try and good luck!
Did you ever find out the source of the intense pain on the top of your head/brain? It describes exactly what dropped me to my knees last night and I am very worried and curious as to what it may be. It was not a headache!!
My Mum has had MIgraine for as long as I can remember. She has had lots of problems with other things over the last few years including asthma and heart problems. Just recently she has noticed that she gets severe stabbing pains on one side of her head which is just above the ear. She tells me its very intense. I told her that I get the same problem if I go out into the cold etc. It became so bad that her doctor sent her for a scan and they told her that its like a type of athritis in the head. I have searched hi and low and cant find any such thing. Ive looked at this forum and have seen very similar things in all that you all say. I was just wondering if anyone thinks her doc is right in saying its arthritis. He has given her a specal anti inflam... which is used in people with arthritis and she says it seems to work but she has also found that she is getting terrible migraine too, almost like she did when she was younger. Does anyone have any idea what Im going on about ????? !!!!!
