I have sharp pain in my right temple that last for 3 days now. It repeats every minute or couple minutes and last maybe 3 sec. It woke me up at night. The pain was so strong that I felt tingling in right hand and fingers.
Should I worry or go to the doctor?
Have you tried any over the counter pain killers? If so, has it helped? If it continues for more than a week I recommend getting it checked out by your primary care physician. You may also consider seeing a chiropractor or massage therapist to loosen some of the muscles around your neck. Good luck.
