Sharp Stabbing-Pulsing pain around Top Right Parietal Lobe area.


I tend to get this sharp stabbing-pulsing pain on the top of my head about an inch or so to the right from the midline of my head around the right parietal lobe area. It's almost unbearable sometimes. It even hurts when I touch my hair around that area. It lasts for a couple of hours.

I'm going to ask about it on my next physician visit, but I would like to know if anyone else has had a similar experience or what this symptom could be.

Sounds like a cluster headache. It can be caused by certain foods, or stress. Sorry to hear your having these headaches they are horrible. The only thing that take away mine are relaxing and closing my eyes with a few Tylonol extra strength. The light hurts too.
If you keep having them your doctor may do a CT scan to make sure it's not something more, possibly an MRI
