Hi! i've had this pain at the back of the head, right side, for a while now. It is sharp and it comes in soft waves, lasting for about 3 seconds before it disappears completely. lately, the are has become softer, like if you touch it or put pressure on it, it becomes painful.

what can this be? i've had nasal allergies for as long as i can remember. i am also allergic asthmatic. although i dont know if that is connected. at the same time, my eyesight is also very back. i have a grade of -7.0.

If by back of the head you mean just behind the ear or a little lower, it could be mastitis from an undiagnosed ear infection. If that's where it is, you need to see your doctor quickly.

Not in the ear region. it's directly in the head, right in the occipital region.
