I have been having a pain in the side of my head. It started with a headache. The pain is a sharp stab that comes and goes it started on Saturday evening through Sunday evening. I was fine Monday and Tuesday it started again at about 5:30 p.m.It`s not a constant pain it`s like being poked.I have no other symptoms.
Lots of data on your headache is missing. So, it will be very difficult to determine the nature of your headache based on the brief description you provided. Most headaches are benign in nature. However, few reflect a serious condition.
- How severe and sudden was your headache?
- How old are you?
- For how long you been having headaches?
- Any other associated symptoms?
- What triggers your headache? etc....
