I have been having sharp stabbing pains in my head. The pains last only a few seconds and are gone. I also sometimes have a dull ache and what feels like pressure... but this never lasts very long. I sometimes have pains in my neck that do not last long. I went to the doctor about it and he said it sounds like it is migraine related. I have never had a migraine or been diagnosed with them. I always thought that migraines were very severe and intense. Has anyone else ever experienced these types of pains and do you think it's possible that it's migraine related?? I was worried that it could be something more severe... but the pain is so short lived and is not that severe that I don't really think it is now.

Sounds strange but go to a chiropractor and have him check out your locations. It sounds like migraines OR a dislocation in the neck. Also ask your doctor for a referral to a neurologist.

I have suffered from severe "classic" migraines since elementary school, and so I know very well after 30 years of migraines the precursors or "aura" associated with mine.   One of them is a stabbing pain - always in the same spot - in my upper right parietal area.  This is usually followed by vision loss, and then the full-blown migraine headache.   The good news is that after 30 years I have found the cause of mine (it was a long and tedious process of elimination) - CARAMEL COLOR.    This is the dark brown food coloring found in large quantities in Coke, brown colored soups, sauces, and even baked goods.   You really have to read labels, because it pops up EVERYWHERE, sometimes where you least expect it.   These days I avoid everything caramel/caramel color and so far, so good.   Good luck.

I love when I find others that have trouble with caramel coloring! My allergist thought I was nuts until he did more research. It took almost a year with a food journal to discover what the problem was. I have a very delayed reaction (almost 2 days after consuming) and it takes me out for days with a horrible migraine. It's nice to know I'm not alone edgedancer. It is in everything :(
