I’m very concerned and I am desperate for some advice. I am a 16 year old female and I keep experiencing this. A very severe sharp pain on the back right side of my head. The pain lasts about 30 seconds and then goes. It’s been happening at least twice everyday for the past 2 weeks. There has been no injury to it. It’s concerning as the pain occurs in the exact same spot every time! I went to the doctors 3 days ago and they just said it may be related to a tender neck?? I was so confused with that assumption. They didn’t seem concerned but I don’t think they understood the severity of the pain when it happens. I literally have to stop what ever I’m doing and hold my head whilst it occurs, but then it will just suddenly stop. Any advice??? Should I be worried??

I don’t think it sounds worrying. It’s probably just nerve pain, I used to get them too. Especially if it’s sharp, sudden and lasts a short time, its probably nerve pain you are experiencing, most likely from a tense neck your doctor has clearly said. Don’t worry

A few months. It’s fine though, it’s not a brain tumour don’t worry. As long as you don’t have other symptoms with it, such as nausea, weakness or anything else, then it’s fine. However, if it lasts for a long time, just keep following your doctor. But remember that doesn’t mean it’s something bad

I have felt quite week recently and I’ve been struggling to concentrate, like if someone’s talking to me I often have to ask for them to repeat it as i can’t actually take it in and register what’s being said. I’m just concerned as it’s in the exact same spot every time.

Go to your GP. TSR isn’t a place for a medical diagnosis.
