three weeks ago this jolting, stabbing pain occurred on the top right of my head. I have had these previously then take a anti-inflammatory and the pain would go away. This time it stayed, had an injection in the area but no relief. It is very sensitive even to touch my hair in that spot. Laying down on a pillow on right side of my head is impossible as it is so tender on that side!! It would hit every couple of seconds, then every couple of minutes then back to every couple of seconds, and so it continues. It is very irritating and disabling as one cannot concentrate when having these jabs every couple of minutes. GP ruled out Occipital and any other neuralgia and said it is a nerve on the scalp causing this, thus the injection. Sometimes it feels as if my ear might have inflammation or my throat when I swallow or drink something, but there is no sign of any upper respitory infection and ear seems fine.
Apparently it is very difficult to pinpoint any specific nerve to be able to sort out this problem or is it something more than just a nerve.
Just wish there would be a definite cause for this and a definite treatment???
