Question: Head pain/nerves?

 maiden75 - Sun Jun 18, 2006 7:10 pm

I am a 30 year old female diagnosed with migraines, vertigo and anxiety. I had an MRI about 6 years ago when migraines started that was normal. No current meds except Tylenol when needed, no caffeine or stimulants. Today I had a sharp stabbing pain that lasted for about one minute off and on from my eye to the back of my head near the neck. I have also had sharp head pains out of nowhere. I have also noticed recently that if I tap above my eyebrows I can feel tingling shocks on the top part of my head toward the back. What causes this sharp head pain out of nowhere, and why does tapping above the eyebrows feel like that? Thanks alot! You guys are great!

User avatar Hi maiden75,
Migraines affect people in some very peculiar ways. However, have you had any diagnostic studies, ie., MRI, etc.?
