Hi, I am a 19 yr old female college student. I had headaches for a few weeks, they started out as tension headaches that went away when I forced myself to get involved in activities. But recently I have been experienceing these random sharp pains throughout my head during the day. I do have issues with anxiety. The pains are not affected by advil. They come and go througout the day. Sometimes I get one and it stops. They occur in different areas all over my head, sometimes my jaw and occasionally behind my eyes. The pain isnt completely unbearable but I do notice it and it scares the hell out of me. I had migraines in the past so I dont think this is one. I've been having some trouble with my sinuses as well. I live in upstate NY and the weather has recently gotten very cold. It is very hard to describe these pains. Its like a zap of pain, sometimes I get it for a few minutes and its done. Ugh Im so scared. I meet with my neurologist on Friday.
