hi, im new here and this is my first post. Sorry if its in the wrong area.
Twice over the last 36 hours i've had extreme pain in the left side of the back of my head. Every time my heart beats the pain was very intense and felt like my heart was pumping more blood then what my artery/brain could handle. The first night it lasted for 2 hours or so, I had bad nausea and was vomiting which didnt help at all. Today, it lasted for less time (about 1 hour) and the pain wasnt as intense as the first.
I've had many headaches before (usually tension headaches) but this feeling is completely different. I could literally feel the blood being pumped into my brain. The pain made me want to cry.
The exact area of the pain is about 1 inch to the right from the top of my left ear, and maybe a cm or 2 up from there. Going by the feeling of it, its where the artery connects to the brain.
I'd have gone to the hospital for a check up, but I honestly hate those places and will only go if its life threatening.
