    Ice pick headaches
    sabrina24 posted:
    I started having them about a year ago, im currently 16 as of march 3rd. I went to the doctor and he told me it was ice pick headaches. Its always been in the same spot on the left side around the crown area. But recently its been on the right side but back a little more. They arent real intense usually but every once in a while they will be. its usually dull but it lingers for no more than a few minutes. What really worries me is that a few days ago my eyebrow started twiching and its also kinda my eye lid too. And every once in a while I'll feel like I'm moving almost like vertigo and kind of lightheaded almost. And this might just be me but yesterday I was mixing up words and I would say 3 or 4 wrong words before I got the right word I was trying to say. ....Im just too overly worried arent I? I dont want to go to the doctor just for him to say "Oh thats normal".
