hi my name is Alistair im 21 and I've had this weird annual stabbing pain in my head on July 6th every year since I can remember it feels like someone is coming behind you a stabbing you in the back of the head, When this happens I lose my vision and in serious pain then it goes for a year (weird), also I think I no how it happens its when I make a sharp turn of my head and my left side of my head and neck start to hurt, any1 heard of something like this?

      Hi again we tried to find what the 3 of us had and at random times since the initial stab on head.we still to at odd times get the area tender.but again don't know why strange we've said why we sill get that odd time scalp pain also .weve not suffered with headaches or migraines.only thing we've got in common is rhinitis or sinusitis.have you had either of these symptoms ?

        I like you have only came up with ice pick some months ago,nothing else.

        Strange thing to happen all 3 of us live within close range of each other in Dorset.was hoping others would have read your post.cant believe it's just the 4 of us,and why us 3 in same family.The pain of it was severe what ever it was ,another of life's mysteries. If you ever do get the answer love to know and likewise Alistair

      Hiya weird hey all this.Rhinitis and sinusitis is a bit like really bad Hayfever that never stops .Cant say it's an allergy doing it don't know,it was just a fluke conversation between me and my aunt,then few weeks later my cousin mentioned her walk in the park  to me and this Awful sharp pain that stabbed side of her head and threw her forward I couldn't believe it then told her about me and my aunt  opposite side of cousins so not an aunt to her. My aunt in her 80s me and cousin in our 60s so your only 21 so it's not age related I wouldn't think so. Wonder who else has had this happen that we don't or might never know about Alistair  x
