    Had this a few times now. It's been here since I woke up today. Whenever I cough or shake my head I get a really bad sharp pain on the left upper side of my head.

    Anyone else experienced this? It's fine if I keep my head still but it shouldn't hurt when I shake it

    Any ideas?

    Haha same :p: I get headaches like this all the time...usually when I'm dehydrated or I've been hot for a long period of time. Have a drink of water and a cold shower?

    I always thought that was just a continuos headache. I went the opticians the other day cos I had weird flashing in front of my eyes and she said it's either a migraine with no head ache or a tear in my eye somewhere.

    It's weird, I took painkillers hours ago and it still hurts.

    Its really wierd, I swear some neurochemical gets released that causes pain, yet is addictive in that it wants you to realise you have a pain in your head - I think its environmental in cause i.e. food, dehydration, heat etc - I think we're all going to suffer from migraines when we are older

    Or a pain that I can't stop doing to myself because I feel it will cause some sort of permanent brain damage...bit weird. I don't want brain damage though...can't explain


    Or what you said :p:
