User Profile
hiya im a 19 year old female and have problems with health anxiety.. Over the last week i have been having pains in the left side of my head ... They come and go.. Lasting a few seconds and occuring around every 30 seconds.. Not sure how to explain this but this pain isnt that painfull ... It dosnt make me flinch amd dosnt make me want to take painkillers... I also have been having shooting pains in my left ear... When i press on my ear that hurts too... Thats about it for symptoms really...
This pain dosnt wake me from my sleep and probably wouldnt affect my daily life if i didnt let it.. To be honest i probably wouldnt even notice it. Its just that i cant stop thinking about it and for some strange reason i feel like im dying ... Its my birthday tomorrow and all i can think is whats the point. Id be greatful for any information

Welcome to e health forum.

Your ear issues appear to be due to either a allergy or infection related issue. It does not indicate brain cancer.

You might consult with a ENT doctor for a examination , which may help to provide proper answers to your doubts.
