    Head pain
    An_188775 posted:

    I often get pains in the back of my head, especially when i am looking up. It feels sort of like someone is stabbing a cold needle through my skull. I am also frequently dizzied. Is this something I should worry about/is it worth getting checked out?

    Hi An_188775, Ouch! I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering those symtoms. I would definitely get myself checked out if I were you. I feel like it's too big of a risk to take not to see a doctor given your symptoms. Sometimes when I have weird symptoms or if I want to find a new doctor, I visit this site:

    I hope that you visit your doctor and sort your pain out!
