I have been experiencing random sharp pinching pains in the left side of my head. One moment I will be fine, and then It feels like something pinched my brain with tweezers. I guess that's the best way to describe it. Most of them are severe, they will happen out of no where and will be consistent for a couple seconds, stop for about half a second, and come back either less or more severe from anywhere between one second to three seconds apart from each other. The pattern usually continues for about 30 seconds. Sometimes, after coming down from the pain, I feel a cooling sensation, as if cool water were flowing down my brain. I often feel slightly light headed once it fades. Sometimes followed by a warm sensation. What could this be? I sometimes have chest pains with it, some severe but most are mild. My memory has been getting worse, my concentration is also. I don't want to worry about it to much, it may only make things worse lol. I would just like an idea of what this could be.
Please let me know if you find anything out...My 13 yr old daughter has been complaining about the same feeling of pinching in her "brain" as she describes it, but its usually very localized and not just in one sopt...Our doctor didnt seem too concerned about it..But this has been going on over a year...Very concerning for me, so if you find anything out let me know Id appreciate it...
I certainly will let you know! My doctor says it's stress but I think there's more to it than that. I find that drinking allot of water helps. Keep her hydrated and have her eat a lot of fruit! I noticed that caffeine makes it worse, and yes stress does too. I'll keep you updated on anything I find out!
Hey did you find out about it. I experience a similar kind of pinching pain for a few seconds out of nowhere. It comes and goes randomly. Its pretty severe, i really have to stop hold something if I'm standing. Its been happening since a few years. Earlier I didn't notice, now its more prominent. It is not a constant cycle, It happens randomly, anytime, sometimes more sometimes less.
Its got me worrying now. Could you pls enlighten me if you find out anything. Your description seems familiar to what happens to me.
Hi i'm jesus and for sbout 3 to 4 years i have suffering sharp pain on the left side of head i have went to the doctor but they just assume it might be migraine. The pain comes and last the whole day and whrn i take pills it would go away for the day but the next day as soon as i wake up it starts bothering me. The last time it came was about 2 years ago and now it came back and hurts the same way no without any difference which is weird bc it used to go away and come back in months. Now it lasted 2 years to come. Please can someone give me a clue about what to do,
I have also started experiencing the same thing, pinching at right back side of the head. Today I consulted with Neurologist, as per him the pain seems to be Migraine . Somewhat I am agree with him, but seems the pain is also related to neck muscles.
Pain goes away while not using the pillow, sitting and standing straight! Running and tracking may cause the problem sever.
Neck Massage works for me. Also, using muscle pain buster cream too.
Rest I am also trying to figure it out more, I will keep posted if I come to know something worth.
