What symptoms do you experience with your headaches?

Comment from: 25-34 Male Published: January 03

A burning pain shooting from the back of the lower left brain to the front, last for about 3 mins at most, after that it's gone. It doesn't happen at regular intervals. I get it at least thrice a month.

My 3 year old son and were wrestling and "bonked heads". He seemed fine, but I got it directly above the ear and have never been in so much pain. No other symptoms other than not sleeping last night, maybe because I felt nervous about it.

I wake up with an agonizing headache behind my right eye causing tears to flow (not by crying). This has been every morning for nearly 2 weeks. Sometimes reoccurring during the day.
