A dull headache...around the temple to top of the head...intermitantly a sharp prodding pain is felt...Does anyone else have a similar headache...Is this anything to worry about?

Get your eyes tested and don't wear black socks.

merge this thread with the 'floaters' one.... :lol:
I'm aware of the cheap black socks...have now disposed of them...I was wondering whether I might have an aneurysm...the reason is I was attacked about 14yrs ago by a gang of youths..I was KO...I remember looking down on myself [out of body experience :shock: ] then coming round in the road...I was thinking just maybe I have damaged some blood vessels in the brain..probably caused by this attack [unprovoked] on me...coupled with smoking...surely not?...your thoughts would be helpful.. :)

Hi triz

A good ten years ago, my sister had a problem with her eyesight and it was blurry not painful just she couldnt see properly anyway, not all the time just every now and again, she went to the opticians and he could not see any problem with her eyes but the problem did not get any better. then i believe he recommended her to the doctor i will check when i chat to her next if she had other symptoms. She had a scan and an aneurysm in the brain i believe it was on the brain stem cell behind the optic nerve ? so as the blood dried it caused the blurring I think ? they operated and she is fine now eyesight ok
occasional numbness on left side of the body so i would advise you to get checked out without wanting to worry you too much

Sounds to me like simply stress related headache or tiredness. Always best to get checked out, but not always something to worry about.

Ps could be wrong but as far as i'm aware, an aneurysm is a lot more painful than a 'dull' headache. Baring in mind its a swelling blood vessel... :wink:

Oh just thought, it could also be sinus problems. In fact, I'd put money on it being your sinuses :wink: Try steam in a bowl and a towel over your head...should heat the sinuses and clear any blockages. Sinus headaches are dull and cause pain all over the head, and throbbing. Hope that helps x

You might need some anti-biotics from the doc as you may have a sinus/ear infection this may explain the headaches and general aches all over.
