It feels like a knife and randomly appears and then disappears ~3 seconds later. Been having it maybe 2-3 times a day for the last few days but seems to be more often today. Was originally in the left side of my brain but now it just happened in the right. I'm not sure if it's a headache because that's a dull pain.

Does anyone know what kind of problem this is? Is it just another manifestation of a headache or something worth seeing a doc about?

Thanks, don't want my brain to implode :woo:

EDIT: Not on any meds so can;t be a side effect

Go and see a doctor... They can only tell you not to worry or tell you what the problem is. It will also put your mind at ease...

You're too intelligent :eek:

No I don't know, I've had it before, never went to the doctor though. Don't take that as an advice though!

It's definitely not your brain; it cannot feel pain

I tend to get pains like that when I'm stressed out or not sleeping too well. If it carries on and you get worried about it, just got and see the doctor. I think if there was something seriously wrong, you'd know about it. Just take painkillers and see whether they help when the pains come. I find they dont hurt as much if I take asprin every so often.

See your doctor. Your brain can't feel pain though, so it might be a symptom of something else

What?

An ache is a specific type of pain. As you can see in my OP I referred to it as a knife because it is a precise and sharp pain. It's not an ache in any sense of the word - get a grip. I am not a hypochondriac, was just concerned because I've never heard of this before.

Thanks Tom, I'll try my best to stay cheery :rolleyes:

Thanks for the replies guys.
