Anyone get sharp stabbing pains in the head? Its not really a headache just a sharp stabbing pain on the right side of my head near the middle. Like someone is stabbing me there. The pain lasts about 5 seconds then goes away and comes back. Im a veteran at this whole anxiety business by now, but this is starting to scare me a little bit. AND WHY AM I STILL ALLOWED TO USE GOOGLE ??? nono Cause of course i type in sharp pains in the head and it pulls up aneryisms. So now im sitting here waiting to drop from one confused I thought before i run to the ER i should check with my fellow anxiety troopers and see if this is something anyone else has had. Blessings to everyone!

  Hi hunniebee

  I have never hear of sharp stabbing pain in the head but I heard and have had a shocking sensation in my head that could last that long at a time.

  Are you still having this pain or is it gone by now?

i took some aleve and its gone. I think it was just some kind of strange headache. I just overall dont feel well lately, with the miscarriage and the coming off the ativan. I got more ativan but i went days without having any so i think my body is still in shock and im having strange sensations all over. Sucks but we all get thru the bad days!

HI Hunnie!
I think it's very possibly stress headaches! I do know what you mean! This anxiety affects every place on our body! Sigh!
Take care of yourself and hang in there! HUGS GALORE!!!!!

I agree that the weaning of the Ativan and the miscarriage all lead to increased snxiety and stress in your life.  If Aleve helped your headache then IMO it was probably related to your anxiety/stress problems

Sometimes, a headache is just that - a headache. Other times, a headache can be a symptom of another condition. In addition, there are different kinds of head pain, and treatments vary depending on the diagnosis. For these reasons, timely and accurate diagnosis is important if not critical. If you start to have these headaches again and are concerned, call your physician.

It is best to let the expert decide what action to take next.
