I’ve had migraines for years but never had one like this. It started out with sharp, stabbing pains that came and went – lasting a few seconds at a time. The pain slowly spread over the entire left side of my head and is now a full blown migraine but I’m still getting those intermittent stabbing pains – especially when I turn my head or move around. Any ideas on what this could be or should I see my doctor?
This sounds like it could be shingles (herpes zoster), especially if you start to see reddish spots on your head or face. Of course, it could also be caused by other conditions. I concur with the advice of the previous answerer — see a doctor ASAP.
