Sharp pain on left side of head near temple. Is this a migraine or headache?

Possible migraine : Migraine like headache can be caused by a bone spur in the nose. A ct scan of the sinuses is indicated and if the spur is present a septoplasty to remove it is indicated. I provide relief to almost 90% of patients with this problem. Visit my website for more information at www. Kevinsmithmd.Com. ...Read more

Headache: There are many causes of headache - it could be the cold, it could be related to allergies, it could also be a migraine! have you tried taking anything? Tylenol and Ibuprofen are helpful in general, but if you have nasal congestion and allergies, an anti-histamine could help, as well as nasal saline rinses. If you take off the pressure in your sinuses, maybe your head pressure will go away too! ...Read more

See your PCP: for examination and tests to rule out temporal arteritis. Initially the headache may be the only presenting symptom with the temporal and occipital regions being the most common locations. Tender spots or nodules may be present in the scalp, especially over inflamed arteries. See your PCP for evaluation and diagnosis. ...Read more

Need headache diary: Whenever someone has a one sided headache one can think about migraines. Whenever anybody talks about constant dull pain one can think about tension type headaches especially without light sensitivity and other vegetative features. So it seems like you have a little bit of this and a little bit of that. You could use a headache specialist--- and should fill out a headache diary to get analyzed. ...Read more

Probably not: You should have a doctor check you out but this is probably not a serious condition. You may be having irritation of a nerve in the face or a muscle spasm in the temple. Another possibility is some TMJ syndrome causing pain in the face / temple area. If you have worsening, more frequent pain, sudden hearing loss or numbness / tingling in the face, see the doctor right away ...Read more
