Stabbing headache

I get migraines a lot but lately this one is terrible. I had to leave work on Wednesday and call of on work Thursday and I'm still having this same stabbing headache. I took a imitrex which seemed to help a little bit last night I woke up again and here it is again the same dull sharp pain on the left side of my head and sometimes it switches to my right. I honestly feel like crying it hurts so badly it shouldn't hurt this badly! I will admit I have severe anxiety when my headaches come on so I fear the worst which definitely doesn't help the situation but I'm scared. Should this dull sharp pain be happening that feels like a knife?

Hi There,

Stabbing pain could be caused by Occipital Neuralgia. Have you looked into this as a possibility? There are sensory nerves that run along the back of our skull..when they get injured or inflamed they can send stabbing pain along the back of the head.. this pain does not extend into the face.
