sharp pain in my temple area.


For the last couple of days, I've been having sharp pains in the temple area. Some are worse than others, sometimes it even hurts . Any ideas? Thanks.

Re: sharp pain in my temple area.

Hi Shell, saw your post and thought I would reply. I have been having sharp pains in my temporal lobe area, but I also have migraines, the sharp pain is new and I don't know what it means, I was thinking maybe it's just another type of headache like icepick. I've had migraines for a long time, but this pain is different. Have you seen a neurologist yet? let me know how you are doing.

Re: sharp pain in my temple area.

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.
