    Question Chronic Temple pain

    Hi there..

    I have been having this chronic pain in my left temple for about a year now... It does not accompany a headache all over, only ALWAYS on the left temple.. it is usually just a throbbing pain (sometimes really bad..other times just slight) and it can last a few hours or more..
    I have had about 3-4 episodes so far where this temple pain will come out of no where and feels like a stabbing pain that is very intense for about 20 seconds and it leaves me paralysed where I can't blink, move, or speak... It is really scary... that has only happened three times... otherwise it is just a normal headache pain in my left temple.

    The only problem I have been having is congested sinuses, so I had a CT scan done this week. That may show me something that could be causing this pain..

    If that xray comes clear.. what can I ask my doctor for?
    It feels like what you would think a brain tumor feels like... (not that I know what it feels like) but it is so intense..

    Thanks for any advice..

    Re: Chronic Temple pain

    I also have frequent throbbing pain in my left temple area (and experience dizziness/lightheadedness every few weeks) -- though my pain in the temple area is not as severe as what you mention. I don't have much advice, but will be interested in seeing what responses you receive. I wish you well.
