: Hi. I'm wondering if you all can help. I am a 27-year-old female in good shape. For the past 2 1/2 weeks, I've had strange pinprick or icepick headaches on various spots on the top of my head. I've also intermittently had tingling in my fingertips and a couple times, my arm. I've been to the doctor twice in the past two weeks, the first time she thought I had a strange migrane, but migrane medication didn't help. The second time, she did a number of blood tests, all which came back normal. She said I was too young to be having a stroke, but after reading these posts, I know that is not true. Could these be the signs of a stroke. I have also been under a tremendous amount of stress and anxiety lately. Thanks.

About three years ago I was diagnosed with Icepick Headaches. They went away for almost two years. I'm now 45 and they're back. I had all kinds of blood test run, all negative. A MRI - also negative. My doctor says she can put me on meds to prevent but because the episodes are infrequent and sudden what's the point. I normally have two or three within an hour and they leave me with a leftover headache I treat with Tylenol or Advil. They also leave my head very sore to touch in spots about the size of a quarter. They don't frighten me anymore but I'd love to get rid of them. I think that they're related to stress.
