Sharp pains left side of head Worried!!

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all! I'm new to this group. I'm super worried. I already suffer from health anxiety and now been suffering from headaches. They are random electrical shocks that last seconds but scared as heck! I'm wondering if it comes from my neck or I'm afraid of the worse case scenario tumour! I'm afraid to go to my doctor as I'm convinced it will be bad news. Any advice would be appreciated

    When you say "random electrical shocks" do you mean like a brief and sudden spasming? Can you elaborate? It sounds very familiar to what I've been dealing with for years. How long do the actual headaches last? Short and sharp or long and dull?

    Sounds like it could be nerve endings in your neck. How sharp is the shock on a scale of 10 (10 being unbearable)? I get spasms that shoot ip my neck and I to the side of my scalp. Pain is about a 6. Sporadic too. Worse when I sit at a computer for prolonged periods. Talk to your doctor though. Fearing the worst is common (I do it all the time). Your complaint might be an easier fix than you imagine.

      Thanks I do plan on talking to her but always fearful of waiting for results. I'm Infront of a computer all day every day. Spiratic for me is getting them a couple days in a row maybe 2 or 3 a day. Then disappearing and coming back a few weeks later. Maybe even higher stress periods in my life. I will take closer not and will get the nerve to talk to my doc about it soon

    I can sympathize. When it first started happening to me I was terrified. Took me a while to draw the connection that the spasms started when I started sitting at a computer for 9 hours a day. My sense is that it could be muscle/nerve related. Good luck in your pursuit for relief!
