Shooting pain

I posted this in another forum but then discovered this one, which may be more appropriate.

Hi, I'm 42. A few weeks back I started getting these shooting pains in the head. Very painful, they last about 5 to 10 seconds. My neurologist thought they were ice pick headaches. However, I discovered that the pain seems to be triggered by my left foot. Left foot, right side of head. All I have to do is lightly brush the side or under the foot and the pain rips through my skull. Oddly, I could be sitting still and get an attack. Last night the pain hit me so frequently I was on the floor crying.

Any ideas? I've also lost about 10 pounds since this started.

Tests done: MRI, CT (both negative). All nutrient levels are normal save for vitamin D, which was a little low, as to be expected.

Thanks!
D
