I’m not sure what it was, but it was not pleasant.
It’s not the first time it has happened. A horrible pain. A pain that I cannot explain.
It felt like someone had put a knife through my head. All I wanted was the pain to go away, but it wouldn’t. The more I thought about it, the worst it felt.
So what happened?
A headache – but definitely, not a typical headache.
I am worried. I never felt anything similar. I will need to visit a doctor.
Now that I say that I just had a thought. In the UK, doctors use Google to diagnose their patients. I can do that too.
Google… severe pain on the side of the head.
Here are some of the results:
- According to NHS cluster headaches are excruciating attacks of pain in one side of the head, often felt around the eye. Cluster headaches are rare. Anyone can get them, but they’re more common in men and tend to start when a person is in their 30s or 40s.
Not sure about this as the pain I felt was not around my eye, but good to know.
- There are over 300 types of headaches, about 90 per cent of which have no known cause. However, a migraine or a cluster headache are the most likely causes of a headache on the right side of the head. Tension headaches may also cause pain on one side in some people.
More likely. However, the medication didn’t really help. I will definitely seek medical advice because this isn’t the first time it happens.
Do you have any suggestions?
