Forum Name: Headaches
Question: Severe headaches
|BooneDog88 - Thu Nov 18, 2004 4:38 pm|
I am 16, non-smoker, and experience EXTREME headaches. It is really weird because they don't last but about 5 seconds. They are VERY painful, and sometimes it is so strong that I almost collapse it feels like. The pain is located right in front of my ears on the soft spot. It hasn't happened lately, but happens every now and then. What is it? What causes it?
Also... I don't know if this is normal or not, but there are certain spots on my head that if you barely press down on, it causes EXTREME pain. Is that normal? If not, what is it?

This sounds like it may be trigeminal neuralgia...
I'm not a doctor though, it's just something I've read about.
