STOP POKING!: You are just aggravating a mild infammation of the vessels which travel through the temples (TEMPORAL ARTERIES) If they are still painful after you have left them alone for 2 weeks get it checked out with your PCP (Primary Care Provider)
Hope this helps

Two days ago I got a headache. I pressed on my temple by accident and the headache got worse. I've been feeling sick and dizzy. Pain in one temple?

I have a pain in my left temple when I press in it. I don't get headaches and this pain just came randomly. I only feel it when pressed. Any ideas?

I have a pain in my left temple when I press in it. I don't get headaches and this pain just came randomly. I only feel it when pressed. Any ideas?

Problem safe: Left temple pain can come from many causes, the more common including grinding teeth at night (TMJ like syndrome). If you have any vision changes you need to seek medical attention immediately to get testing for Temporal arteritis, if the pain is over the artery this does increase the risk and my concern. You are young so the later is much less likely. Try taking some ibuprofen and get a TMJ eval. ...Read more

What causes pain/tenderness on eyebrows, especially when pressed? In addition, I tend to feel pain/tenderness on my temples from time to time.

What causes pain/tenderness on eyebrows, especially when pressed? In addition, I tend to feel pain/tenderness on my temples from time to time.

Some thoughts...: This may simply be myofascial pain (tenderness in muscles of unknown cause), but a more important condition should be ruled out: Giant Cell Arteritis. This is an auto-immune inflammatory condition affecting blood vessels (most commonly, branches of the external carotid artery). If not treated, it can lead to loss of vision. The workup includes a focused exam and history, labs, and possibly biopsy. ...Read more

Saw doctor he pressed on and around my temple very firm and it has felt quite pressure and a bit sore since can he do damage?

Saw doctor he pressed on and around my temple very firm and it has felt quite pressure and a bit sore since can he do damage?

Yes, yet unlikely: Because it would likely require enough pressure to break your skull to do any significant damage. The far bigger issues: What is going in your temple area and, to a very minor degree, exactly where pressure was placed by what method. These 2 issues combined with mind/brain perceptions of "soreness". ...Read more

Just had sharp pain that went from my chest over through armpit then up to my ear to my temple then when I pressed on armpit got sharp pain again why

Can't say.: Sharp and brief pain that travels over a variety of anatomic regions is usually a referred type of pain and can be seen in all kinds of conditions and processes. If there is a lump in the armpit it may be worthwhile to see someone to make sure it is nothing abnormal. ...Read more

I am suffering from a daily headache in left side of head and feeling of something pressed inside, please help?

NDPH: New daily persistent headache. These headaches are characterized by a relatively abrupt onset of headache (within 3 days) that does not remit and is persistent. It has been suggested that this headache may be related to immune changes possibly related to the epstein-barr or similar virus but this hypothesis needs further investigation. Fortunately, these headaches are mostly self-limiting. ...Read more

Possibly lymph node: With a little time ; effort most people can be taught to feel the small, non-tender pea sized lymph nodes in your neck. In that location they are often next to firm muscle ; not buried in soft tissues like they are in most of the body. If they become tender ; grow larger, they are reacting to something ; may need to be evaluated. Most benign nodes swell ; shrink over a 3wk cycle. ...Read more

Had headache and pressed hard on my radix to reduce head pressure, could this make my radix smaller, push the bone in?

No: "Radix" refers to an external nasal landmark. It's not a separate internal structure. The bone underlying the radix is the frontal bone, which is a large skull bone. Ordinary finger pressure could not possibly do anything to it except maybe briefly deform it by a millimeter or two. ...Read more

Possible varix...: What you observed and described could represent the occurrence of varix, which is a tiny cluster of veins like small hemagioma, but bears no clinical significance. Of course, without a direct look at them, it is hard to tell what it is for sure. If as what I suggested, you need no worry and treatment, and just leave them alone with watch and see. More?
