  • Yep. And ice picks.

  • I've had it for 3 days, they are horrible me go behind the eye!

  • Could it be sinus related?

  • Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz I'm not sure I'm a little congested but I also grind. I went in for toradol injection on Friday because I was getting pins and needles sensation in leg and arm along with these stabbing/ shock pains like a migraine but it has not gone away :/

  • hydrate. See if warm or cold on your browline helps. I take sudafed, the behind the counter stuff.

  • Yes. You never get use to it. For years I would lean against our refrigerator and put my hand in the freezer (literally) trying to convince myself that living with this pain had a purpose. Still looking for answers 43 years later. But this group helps, knowing that there are others and our pain is real. I'm not weak or crazy. I'm strong and determined like my friends in this group! When you are weak, we are your strength!❤

  • My head not hand!

  • word of advice (cause I did it) don't get a bottom freezer. I made my husband keep the side by side in the garage cause I cant lean down to stick my head in the bottom freezer. There are pillows you can keep in the freezer too.

  • Thank you ❤️ it is so hard to describe to people but so nice that people understand on here what the pain description is without sounding crazy.

  • sound crazy. Go for it. We get it.

  • I used to get them consistently and was diagnosed with Occipital and Trigiminal​ Neuralgia, so I now take Gabapentin

  • You are so right about the bottom freezer...made that mistake.

  • Did you get pins and needle sensation on one side of body with the stabbing/ shocking in head?

  • Gabapentin has helped me also. I can now move around and have more energy. It was a miracle for me last year.

  • I'll get some of those pillows! Thank you!

  • Xxxxxxx Yzzzzzz Hon I use the barley filled heating pads and put them in the freezer.

  • The closest thing I got that resembled that was what I called 'little electrical shocks" that would rush through my head from my teeth to top of my head sometimes just below my neck . worse feeling ever. They happen sporadically but I fear them

  • I found out that my jaw was not aligned correctly and my bite is off. I now wear a bite plate 24/7 it helps!

  • I get pain on the right side mainly. The pins was across the forehead and down the right neck area

  • I do too! It is my right side leg hand and face cheek along with these shocks.

  • Ask your doctor about it

  • Yes

  • I get a sharp shot of pain in my temple when a really bad one is about to come on.
