Brief Stabbing Pain In The Same Spot

Brief Stabbing Pain In The Same Spot

Does anyone else get a stabbing pain that comes and goes in the same exact spot? Its so weird. Lately it has been on the side of my head. The pain is very sharp and stabbing but it usually only lasts for 30 seconds to a few minutes and then disappears as quickly as it started. Sometimes it only happens once a day and sometimes 5-10 times a day. This morning is was so painful it woke me up from sleep. But after a few mins-poof! It was gone. Ive had a brain mri recently that was normal

google Sunct Syndrome,, my husband used to have that,, my son suffered with cluster headaches ( a version but much worse ) they started when he was 19 and would wake him up after being asleep for an hour to an hour and a half,, he started wearing a mouth guard to sleep and hasnt had one in over a year

Yes, I get them in my head, my sides and my legs. They come and go without reason. I just figured it was part of fibro.

Yes I get them in my head- mostly right occasionally left side. I have had an MRI of my brain and nothing unusual. I also have migraines and while these stabbing pains don't develop into migraines I have wondered if they are connected since migraines can cause shooting pains too. I have also been woken up by them.

YES I get pains like lightening going up the back of my head on both sides. Its usually one side or the other,Ive had MRI s also and they came out normal except I have arthritis in my neck. I did notice when I was on gabapentin they went away,but couldnt stand the side affects .They got so bad one time my Dr. gave me a nerve block.

Yes I do various places the side of my head that the migraines occur and my right calf and ankle and great toes. It is brief but enough to to make me stop and take notice and wait for it to pass
