Head Pain

Posted by @jaylareed16, Aug 26, 2016

A year ago, more or less, I popped my thumb’s knuckle against the side of my head. When i did it, a sharp pain went throughout my head, so bad that i gasped and i felt as though my eyes went out of focus. It was like shocks went through my head in that area. Now, whenever i press too hard on that spot or if i’m scratching there, a pain goes through my head.

Hi @jaylareed16, and welcome to Connect. Ouch! That sounds very painful. Two questions for you: Did you talk to your doctor about this? He/she might be able to provide a better explanation as to why this happened. Also, have you experienced any symptoms since?

I didnt go to the doctor because i didn’t think it was such a big deal.
There havent been any symptoms since then, just pain whenever i put too
much pressure on it

That sounds frustrating! If you’re finding the pain is persisting please see your doctor. Getting a through evaluation and consultation by a trained professional is the best way to get closer to pinpointing and diagnosing what’s going on, as well as rule out other underlying cuases. And also get you on track to hopefully finding relief!

My close friend has similar pain. After much research she found it to Trigeminal Neuralga. Research will give on lots of information. Mayo Clinic is very knowledgable.
