    Stabbing Head Pain

    My flu started suddenly on Saturday with a fever and all over aches and pains. My most painful symptom is the pains in my head.

    These are sharp stabbing pains n different areas over my head.

    Is this normal and what causes it?

    Re: Stabbing Head Pain

    Usually sinus congestion causes the type of pain you are experiencing. Can you try taking something to open up your sinus's- an over the counter type and see if it helps?

    If not, you may have an actual sinus infection and not a cold; in which case a trip to the doctor is in order for antibiotics...but you'll know if the over the counter meds help, its just a matter of getting better on its own. Colds almost always are virus's which just have to run their course, infections are bacterial and need antibiotics.

    Lots of rest and fluids in the meantime! Get better soon!
