    Stabbing pain in head.

    I'm a 17 year old male. About 3 months back, I suddenly started experiencing rather painful stabbing pains located behind my left eye that lasted about 1 to 2 seconds.

    Since then the stabbing pain has been in all these location:
    - Behind my left eye
    - Behind my right eye
    - Above my left eye
    - Above my right eye
    - On the side of my nose
    - In my left/right eye
    - On the top of my ear...

    The pain lasts between 1 to 10 seconds. It is quite severe sometimes...other times not so. In a typical day I could have between 1 to several hundred of these stabbing pains. I went quite a few days without any, but then they came back.

    I have seen:
    - A GP (a general practitioner, I dont know what you call them in america) who referred me to a neurologist.
    - A dentist (who looked at my wisdom teeth) who said there was nothing wrong (with my wisdom teeth, however this is probably not the cause).
    - An optician who did a full test on my eyes and found nothing (and my eyes are in good health)

    My neurologist appointment is next month and I am very doubtful that he will know what is wrong. Hopefully I will get an MRI scan.

    I've tried Ibuprofen on a day when the stabbings are very has little or no effect. Paracetemol seems to work slightly better, but it is still hard to tell as the pains are completely random.

    (I do get migraines about once a year, and the symptoms are totally different, so it's not a migraine)
