Sharp head pain one spot sometimes when I sneeze? Sneezed today and got a sting of pain that lasted a second. Left with on off headache. Do I worry?

Cough headache: Your symptoms may represent a cough headache, which is triggered by straining (sneezing, blowing your nose, laughing, crying, singing, bending over, or having a bowel movement). If the symptoms progress or if you have new symptoms, see your primary care provider, who may refer you to a neurologist. Http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/8649540, http://www. Nlm. Nih.

When I get an erection after retracting my foreskin behind my head, it starts to sting. Std symptom?

Not necessarily: If your foreskin is difficult to retract (phimotic) it might cause some constriction near the end of the penis with an erection if the foreskin is in a retracted position. It is important not to leave the foreskin retracted as pain and swelling can result. If you are suspicious about infection talk to your doctor for testing but UTI usually causes frequent urination and burning while voiding ...Read more

What could be causing sharp stinging pains in my heart & pain on left side of head? Blood tests are ok & I also have a heart murmur.

Twice now have had a momentary sharp biting/stinging sensation on the skin of my nose. Should I be concerned? Also been having dizzy spells this month

Possibly yes.: The nerve distribution is in the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve. You can get these type of sensations from something called trigeminal neuralgia. It means the nerve gets irritated.
If it gets worse or more frequent you can go to your doctor and get something to help calm down nerve rotation. ...Read more

When I can warm or hot or when I exercise, I get stings (electrical needle like) all over my body, primarily head and back. I hope there is a cure for this, I think it might be heat rash? But there is no rash, just pain.

When I can warm or hot or when I exercise, I get stings (electrical needle like) all over my body, primarily head and back. I hope there is a cure for this, I think it might be heat rash? But there is no rash, just pain.

Warm up: It is good that you are exercising. What you described is likely due to onset of sweating and the sweat gland trying to put out water quickly. Try a 10 minute period of warming up before progressing to hard or vigorous exercise.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
