Shell - Hi - I'm new here in Headaches, but not to the boards. I get migraines.
Don't want to be an alarmist, but there is a type of headache that can be damaging called Temporal Arteritis. It is a one-sided temporal stabbing pain headache, and it is an inflammatory problem. It is easily diagnosed by testing the SED rate in the blood. Normal SED rate - no problem -- it's just
a migraine. Meaning there is no danger of damage. It is most often found in people over the age of 60 who have other inflammatory condition(s). It should be treated early, and if done so, it is easily stopped/healed.
So just wanted to let you know. If it continues, and doesn't seem to be a 'Normal' migraine, trip to the doc is in order.
Hope you are feeling better soon.
