The : The best way to approach most doctors about new concerns is to set up an appointment to discuss only the new concern, not other chronic problems. This can be done by telling the schedule something like "i need to see dr. Smith for a new problem. The new problem is headache." while waiting for the appointment, it is a good idea to think about the most accurate answers to questions the doctors is likely to ask. These questions include: when did the problem start? What happened around that time that could have caused the problem (injury, illness, medication changes). What does the problem (such as pain) feel like? (for pain, answers could be things like throbbing, sharp, dull, constant, cold, burning, shooting.) where is the problem? What other things do you feel when you have the problem? (for example, numbness, tingling, weakness, nausea, blindess, neck pain, etc.) does the problem happen all at once, or does it start gradually? Does the problem happen all the time, once a day, several times a day, once a week...? Does the problem happen at certain times of the day? How long does the problem last? What makes the problem worse? What makes it better? Most doctors would be able to quickly and efficiently respond to a patient who says: "since i was 14, about 20 years now, I have had headaches that begin gradually, and are either right sided or left sided, and mostly on the front and in the back of my head. The pain feels like throbbing, and it gets severe. When I have the headache, i feel sick to my stomach and sometimes i throw up. Sometimes, even before the pain starts, i get a black spot in my vision. The headaches get worse when I do things like walk on the treadmill. I really just want to lie down in a dark, quiet room with a cold cloth on my forehead. I get these headaches about 4 times a month, and they last for 5 hours or more. Sometimes excedrin helps, but most times the only thing that helps is going to bed." most doctors would be very concerned if a colleague who heard the above story from a patient did not know the exact diagnosis, even before an examination. At the appointment, it is a good idea to politely steer the direction of the appointment in the intended direction. An example could be "hello dr. Smith, i know i usually see you for my diabetes, fibromyalgia, and high blood pressure, but today i wanted to talk only about a new problem." it seems to help most people if they think about going to the doctor in the same way they think about taking their car to the mechanic. ...Read more

Evaluation needed: Sudden pains like you have still could be of multiple origins. You could have nerve being touched by the bone on the neck causing sudden muscle pains or nerve itself or vascular pains. It is difficult to make that decision here. Go have it evaluated, better for peace of mind. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I've had a sharp pain on my left temple four times today. It comes very quickly, lasts about a minute or and goes away. It is very painful.
Facial pain: You're describing musculoskeletal pain of the temporalis muscle. This could be associated with a common headache, but more likely is associated with temporomandibular joint dysfunction. This can be caused by clenching the teeth, grinding the teeth during sleep. Other things to consider would be trigeminal neuralgia. See your doctor for evaluation. There are many treatments available. ...Read more
